Guns, Germs, and Books


The DVD series is actually Guns, Germs and Steel and it was a very well regarded National Geographic series based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book of the same name by Jared Diamond. Our copy is $18.50 at RestonFriends1.

Perhaps something more peaceful appeals to you? How about

Verdi? Nabucco, Verdi’s third opera isn’t exactly peaceful, but it is

music and they say that soothes the savage whatever. This Deutsches Gramaphone recording on CD is of the Berlin State Opera Orchestra and gets excellent reviews. Our copy is only $16.50 at RestonFriends1.

And finally, something to stimulate your palate. Roger Verge’s Vegetables in the French Style by the creator of Moulin de Mougins in the South of France is enticing enough to turn a meat eater into a vegetarian. Interesting recipes are accompanied by beautiful photography and excellent recipes. Our copy is new, and only $28 at RestonFriends1.


These and many more are available at RestonFriends1. If you are a current

local Friend, we can get them to you without you paying shipping costs. E-mail us!
