Collecting - 03-11-12

While the new James Bond movie "Skyfall" smashed box office records when it was released across Europe at the end of October, US audiences have to wait until November 8. To help celebrate the eagerly awaited US release of "Skyfall", the second edition of "The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond" by David Leigh is available for free for a limited period from Amazon.com, Amazon UK and Amazon Europe.

The book, which is exclusive to Amazon's Kindle stores, includes updated information on the drinks from "Skyfall" and can be downloaded for free between November 3 and November 7 2012.

David, who also runs The James Bond Dossier, says, 'many people were unhappy at the announcement earlier this year that James Bond would be seen drinking Heineken beer in "Skyfall". However, this really isn't a big deal for a number of reasons; first, 007 drank beer in several of the books; second, don't think that he only drinks beer in "Skyfall"; and third, while most people associate vodka martinis and champagne with 007, he actually drinks more whisky in the novels anyway'.

This updated edition of "The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond" covers drinks from all Ian Fleming's novels and short stories, as well as the film series that celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year. It takes a detailed look at the spirits, cocktails and wines enjoyed by 007, providing background information as well as book and movie references throughout.

Download the book for free between November 3 and November 7 2012 (Pacific Standard Time) from your local Amazon store:
