Amusing Quidditch information written by J.K. Rowling and read by the lead from TWD with his real accent, which is like soft, luxurious velvet. The book's sales benefit the charity, Comic Relief. You can't go wrong.

Sideways 3 Chile follows the further adventures of Miles Raymond (played by Paul Giamatti in the now cult movie Sideways) and, to a lesser extent, his friend Jack. It's now 10 years later, and Miles is a successful author, but he's still searching for something; depression has him, once again, in its taloned grip.
