I’m not reading as much non-fiction as I would like, with a pile of historical biographies in particular glaring at me reproachfully. So this seems like a good idea, and I’ve tried to identify a starting list, though these may change:

1. The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford [16 July]

2. Travels with a Medieval Queen by Mary Taylor Simeti [22 June]

3. A Brief History of Secret Societies by David V Barrett [2 July]

4. The Age of Illusion by Ronald Blythe replaced by The Awful End of Prince William the Silent by Lisa Jardine [10 August]

5. Ubiquity by Mark Buchanan [4 August]

The challenge is to read five non-fiction works between May and September 2008, with one that is different from the others (so for me 4 history-type books and one on economics).

Murder on the Orient Express [1974], directed by Sidney Lumet, starring Albert Finney and many, many more.

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
