I am proud to be an associate of Amazon Books.
Now that the Friends of Firth have begun the project that focuses on the roles and the films Colin has done,
I thought it would be fun to offer, through my web site, books that are connected to those roles -- directly or indirectly.

Below are some ideas to get you started. If you decide to order, then click on a title. You will go
directly to Amazon books. You may also search for a title of your choice. (See bottom of page).

HINT: If you search for "Colin Firth" at the bottom of page, you will get a decent selection of his videos.
