    The 'good read' bit refers to the possible future publication of Everest mountaineer Edward Norton's diaries and sketches from 1922 and 1924, not my random ramblings

    Worth looking out for, may be

    I'd like to know when it's for sale. I'd really like to read, I've read as many of the "older" books on Sagamartha as I could find. Including Tensing's account of reaching the summit.

    I've got no interest in any books since then, (apart from the one when Mallory was found, which I've got).

    Hi Lester, I posted the thread because I thought some people might be interested in a new book about to be published. A few brief details of the book are given above, together with a couple of links to more information.

    A book is a set of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of ink, paper, parchment, or other materials, usually fastened together to hinge at one side. A single sheet within a book is called a leaf, and each side of a leaf is called a page. A set of text-filled or illustrated pages produced in electronic format is known as an electronic book, or e-book.
