I was wondering if there is any chance I can get my hands on the entire hardcover library of all Dick and Felix Francis books. Our home recently burned to the ground and along with it was my husbands entire collection of Dick and Felix Francis books. He has his 70th birthday at the end of March and I would love to be able to give him this collection.
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I have read Dick francis website translated of your books several times.

I had begun reading "Even Money" for the second time. I grew tired of sitting, so I put it down and wandered out to where my son was doing some work. On his worktable was a small black plastic object, about the size of a fat grain of rice.
I asked him what it was, he did not know. I looked at it under a powerfull magnifying glass. It was ovoid and had a groove in one end and a bit of clear plastic or glass sticking out of the other.
It was obviously manufactured, but I had no idea what it could be. I put it back and Dick francis website translated back to my reading. I got to the part in the story about the the RFIDs and it dawned on me: Francis; As a librarian and a technologist, I have long appreciated the opportunities that technology has granted libraries in the pursuit of providing information and entertainment to our patrons.
The fact that we can share information previously available only to those fortunate enough to be on premises during open hours, for instance, equates to a service of inestimable proportion.
E-devices, as you are well aware, are now a massive part of the way the general population consumes literature and information, and libraries need to be able to provide that content Dick francis website translated their patrons as they have always done: With all that said, I want to express my displeasure with your publisher, Penguin Books.
Rather than helping their long-time partners, public libraries, this publisher and others like it seem to be on the road to killing off public libraries for good. Over the last 2 years, library e-collection demand has grown by leaps and bounds, and many, many of our patrons are moving to e-readers as their choice for content delivery. Imagine my chagrin, then, when this missive arrived in my inbox yesterday: Additionally, Penguin eBooks loaned for reading on Kindle devices will need to be downloaded to a computer then transferred to the device over USB.
What I do NOT understand, however, is why Penguin is apparently refusing to work with libraries at all in regard to e-content. There is already a secure DRM solution provided by Overdrive, the biggest provider of e-content to libraries. If the fear of content theft comes from the over-the-air, Kindle process, Dick francis website translated remove ALL content in any format?
To do so only punishes libraries and their patrons. I cannot believe that you, a popular author, do not want the public reading your materials, or be able to borrow your materials, through Dick francis website translated method that Dick francis website translated prefer: I would ask you, as a prominent author who is published through Penguin, to bring pressure to bear on your publisher to re-open their e-content to public libraries.
To fail to do so will deny public library patrons access to your own materials and other valuable content in the format that they desire. In closing I will just say that I have never believed the media line that the Internet would kill off libraries. You and I both know that libraries do so much more than a Google search ever could. But if the libraries of the future cannot provide content to patrons, they will truly die. That will be a very sad day for this country and for those who depend on the equitable access to information that we provide.
Felix, I have read all your father's books and those afterwards and enjoyed then all. I am disappointed that in "Gamble" you have found it necessary to have introduced swearing. Your father's books very always ones that could be given to younger members of the family. Please think again for the next book. I get excited every time I think about the next book I'm going to read.
I'm sure glad you're keeping the family 'heirloom' going, Felix.
Many, many more novels I'm hoping you'll continue to write! Dear Felix - I wish to congratulate you on your first solo novel, "Gamble" which I finished last night, unable to put it down. It was exciting, interesting, believable and such a good read.
Dick francis website translated am so pleased you have taken up where your wonderful father, so sadly, had to leave, and you have done it with such style and talent of your own. I look forward to reading many more. I had the great fortune to meet your father when he came to Australia to promote "Decider", which he signed for me, and we had quite a chat as I grew up in Swindon - one small reason why these books always mean so much to me.
Every few years I re-read all of the novels in sequence yes, I have every one! I eagerly look forward to your next one. Dear Felix Francis,Congratulations on your first solo effort I enjoyed it immensly, it was well up to the standard of your father's books with the same unmistakable style must be in the genes.
It was a pleasant surprise to find it in the Dick francis website translated as it was not on the shelves of local bookshops, and although it has not been added to my extensive collection of Francis books it has been added to my memory bank! I particularly like these books for the absence of unpleasant language apart from "effing' Dick francis website translated I find a perfectly acceptable to the F word used so liberally by other authors nowadays.
I just want you to now how your books have help to be a better person. I work on the race track from groom to excerise rider to trainer. When I was a young man my vocabulary was not meant for nice to hear.
Well to change I started reading your books one reason they were about racing and I understood them I had a hard time reading it was like I had forgoten how to read but thanks to your books I pushed through and didn't stop now I enjoy Dick francis website translated thanks Dick francis website translated you Mr. I have just bought a collection of Dick Francis books at the moment I am reading Reflex first published in In the book it mentions watching a video machine As a long-time reader of D Francis novels I was very pleased with my return to the genre via the new solo effort of Felix--"Gamble".
It has the page turning quality, character development and straight forward writing style I hoped for. Ironically I have been trying to arrange a setup with a financial adviser.
Felix's well-informed comments on how planners operate and the issues to face in financial planning added an unexpected extra dimension to the fiction.
This book is one of my favourites!
I have really enjoyed to read your fathers books Dick francis website translated only a few is there a possibility they all where translated to danish at a Dick francis website translated I would love to buy some more!!!!!!!! I am not sure if this is the appropriate forum for my query, but I am sure I read a Dick Francis novel featuring a rich chap who made mechanical 'toys'. I can't remember how the horses entered into the story, but would be grateful if a fellow reader or FF in person could help with the title from my sparse information.
Just visited the new website; it's great. Love the photos and the video clips compendium, together with the spot-on music. That made me shed a tear, as I did when I heard of Dick's passing; he provided my refuge from all life's dismal woes. I have All the treasured paper books which are so muti-read they are starting to collapse and am collecting the ebooks as and when. Wonderful that Felix is continuing with the series! Looking forward to many more.
My family has read all of the Dick Francis books, and it was a discovery. Now I am introducing them to others, and we love the Felix books, too.
I'm re-reading and enjoying each and every re-read. Dick left a gift to humanity with his exciting, warm, and well written books. Our Montgomery County library system is well stocked with these ever-popular books. I read my first Dick Francis book just after my family moved to Canada, inwhen I was It was because I loved horses and wanted a connection to England.
But, I found I learned so much from it that and loved the plot, that I kept on. Chances are I have!! But, now I limit myself to one per year so that I won't read them all before another comes out!! Thanks, Dick and Felix for Dick francis website translated me fall into another world and get wrapped up in it. Keep them coming, Felix!! I've learned so much about things like photography from you and your Dad! I just started reading Dick francis website translated books and I love them!
They are so well written and exciting and I've learned a lot about steepchasing. I love horses, so these books are wonderful. They are all great!!!! I wish Dick was around to write many more!!! With Francis you never walk alone, not even in my place. Felix Francis,I've read all the fiction your father wrote. I however have sold them at used stores due to lack of space in my apartment.
Recently I started using a Nook. I do hope these books can be made available to purchasers in the USA in the near future.
