Book Catcher Series Five: courtesy of The Works (Britain's discount store)

THE WORKS IS ONE OF MY FAV BOOKSHOPS IN BELFAST. It offers a variety of publications and school supplies. Visiting this bookshop is already part of my regular window shopping at the city centre. Hardcovers are always expensive compare to paperback copies. However, this shop offers cheaper prices for both copies. Believe it or not, my recent catch from the store is hardcopies of the following books: The Jesus Papers - Esposing the Greatest Cover-up in History (Michael Baigent), and JFK In Ireland - Four Days that Changed a President (Ryan Tubridy) for 2.99 and 3.99 sterling pounds, respectively. Baigent is the co-author of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, while Tubridy is an award-winning broadcaster in Ireland and currently the presenter of the world's longest running chat show, The Late Late Show.

Briefly, Baigent's book takes the reader step by step through explosive new evidence that challenges everything we know about the life and death of Jesus Christ. While Tubridy's book captures the time that the late US President Kennedy (the first Irish Catholic American US President) is visiting the Republic of Ireland in June 1963.
