Hello everyone, I am Simon Chambers. I am from the U.K and I am new to the site. My son recommended coming here and I have lurked for a while, but have decided to sign up and join in. I am a big reader and have my first book coming out on the 20th of June, which is very exciting. It is about my second tour in Iraq.

2nd tour! This patriot thanks a patriot from across the pond for your service! It cannot have been easy, and telling your stories is probably wrenching, too. Best of success to you with your book!

Simon,

Thank you for your service, not once, but twice! You and all your brothers and sisters in uniform keep America safe! Thank you.

How do most soldiers in Iraq get books to read? Did you read a lot over there I guess should be my first question? Do many download digital books?

Much success on your book. I will read it for sure.

My respect to you Sir.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I really appreciate all the nice welcomes.

The welfare centre in the camps are a great place to pick up books, but some of the camps have a larger selection of books. Some of the camps had good internet connections where you could download books, but others had poor connection or limited access to the internet. It depended on where you were posted. Alot of the time I swapped books, but some publishers send out books to the camps. There wasn't a great deal to do on the down time and reading helped pass the time of day. It would be nice if I could one day send out books to some of my friends that are still serving out in the middle east, as the publishers did.

Welcome from a Londoner and congrats on your forthcoming book.

I've seen a Goodreads group that coordinates free ebooks for US troops. Perhaps this is something you could do for UK troops in the future? Why not ask some authors here if they would help out?
