With the OTT Book now on sale, what better time to take a look at some other wonderful telly-related books from the ages? We’ll be posting one (or two) page (or pages) from a different book each and every day until we forget to, we’ve covered all the TV-tie-in books in our collection, or Blogspot wins the pools and leaves the internet to go and live on a beach. Place your bets.
As pretty much all the books in question have long since been deleted by their publishers, there shouldn’t be any legal difficulty there, we hope. Unlike all those superinjunctions that we've blown wide open on our series of postcards stuck in telephone boxes around the country which luckily no-one has noticed yet for some reason. In any case, we’re putting these scans online under the banner of ‘BrokenTV’, and no-one else. Just in case anyone starts waving their lawyers around.
Today, The Brand New Monty Python Bok (The Monty Pythons, Methuen 1973). And colour!
Look, we did all these blog updates in one go, twelve days ago. We’re running on empty. Can you tell?
A page (or two) from a different book tomorrow. Until then, why not take time to have a look at the television-related book that all the most sexually-alluring bibliophiles are referring to as OTTTBBOTBTVWNNNTTAN (Off The Telly: The Best Bits of the British TV Website 1999-2009)? Available from Lulu.com in paperback for just £16.99 (that's just £0.00005 per word!), or £3.99 for the PDF ebook version, with any profits going to Alzheimer's charities.
Go on, what else are you going to spend your money on? Repairing that gaping whole in your ceiling that means each time it rains you get an electric shock when you switch on the light in the spare room?
