I finished Mater and Commander a couple months back, great book but I haven't talked myself into the entire series yet.I just started reading through the Aubrey-Maturin series again. I started and made it about 20% of the way through the 21-book series a couple of years ago, then set it down when I started grad school. It was a long enough break that I felt like I needed to start back at the beginning, but they're just as enjoyable the second time around!

Sounds like an interesting book for us woodworkers. I click the link to discover " We have run out of stock for this item. " Possible to post the link to the pdf?The Anarchist's Workbench by Christopher Schwarz.
If you dig through this page you'll see that Chris has offered this book up as a free PDF. I'm a woodworker and love building, planning a bench build to act as my base for an electric brewing I'm putting together. Chris has a few books on workbenches, always very detailed and informative.
The Anarchist's Workbench
edit: my cat walked on my keyboard...spelling
Chris has an excellent writing style, and he is very committed to the subject matter as well. There are a few other books in his "anarchist trilogy", all follow the same overall pattern/writing style. Glad you enjoyed it.I spent a couple hours skimming through it and really like his writing style - humorous but loaded with information!
Loved the story, and the film with Vanessa Redgrave and Oliver Reed. Yikes. Would love to see it from the vantage point now, instead of then!
Loudon is about15 miles from our house in France-there's a really great Belgian microbrewerry just outside of Loudun now. I have heard about the "Witches of Loudun" ever since I got married 40 years ago, but none of my inlaws really knew the story so this book has explained it for me. Cardinal Richelieu's walled town(now called Richelieu) is also right there, we got to their town market on Fridays for seafood and cheese.
I never knew there was a movie, but I'm not a movie person. My ADHD makes it almost impossible to sit still long enough to watch a movie. I think the last movie I saw in a theater was the last of the Lord of The Rings movie.Loved the story, and the film with Vanessa Redgrave and Oliver Reed. Yikes.

I actually had no idea until Thanksgiving day, my wife noticed it and asked me if it was the book I had read and spoke so highly of. The film was pretty true to the book as well, although many details were missing.Now streaming, withGlenn Close and Amy Adams, among others. Haven't seen it and I know it's sacrilegious to see a movie before the book.... still. Amy Adams. Glenn Close.
