What I say: Time to join the discounters... My betting and sports yarns, Mug Punting and Smug Punting have both been lobbed into the New Year sales bear pit. Go on - treat yourself to a good read to sustain you through the back-to-work blues. What they say: Mug Punting: "For anyone with a sporting interest in having a few bets and enjoying a beer, this is a good excuse to lose yourself in someone else's story. Five stars from me." "This is a laugh-out-loud funny book that is much about men's relationships with each other as it is about horse racing." Smug Punting: "Another excellent set of tales. Well written too - would appeal to horse-racing fans and others alike." Where to buy: Both books are available through Amazon at £2.61 each for an electronic kindle download (free for unlimited subscribers) and £6.91 each for a proper physical paperback. Better value than the Cheltenham Festival ante-post markets!
