Dear All,

I was browsing through the Gleebooks Summer Reading Guide that came with the Sydney Morning Herald today and came across a book that may be a gift idea for a birder. The book is "A Guide to the Birds of East Africa" by Nicholas Drayson. Firstly, it is not a field guide. The book, set in Kenya, tells the tale of a birder who has fallen in love with a young lady, who is the leader of a mid-week birding outing and is trying to gather enough courage to ask the young lady to accompany him to the Hunt Ball. The young man discovers that he has a rival, a school-days adversary, for the young lady's affections. The two men agree to compete for the right to escort the young lady to the Ball by means of a week long twitchathon. The book should appeal to the fans of Alexander McCall-Smith. Sounds like a ripping yarn.

Glee Books has the book on special at the moment for $13.95. At that price I might even be tempted myself.
