Good morning all you readers out there in WordPress land. I recently finshed Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, now I’m on to Krakatoa by Simon Winchester.
It’s Non-fiction November and I’m getting thru my initial picks for reading this coming month.
Winchester is one of my favs for his skill at opening up and explaining historical events and places with intelligent, insightful and gripping prose. I have several others by him that I’ve read and are still on my shelves. The first one I read by him and made me an instant fan of his writing was Korea – A Walk thru the Land of Miracles. Krakatoa is a book he did in 2003 shortly after the beginning of “The War on Terror” in 2001 and one my wife bought me for Christmas, yet I haven’t read yet. Sadly, I’ve read a couple of his others, as well as many other non-fiction books by other authors, since then. Now is as good a time as any to finally do the deed.
My hope is to finish these two books by the end of November and if I do, I’ll have a surprise book at the end to see if I can get to. What are you reading? Will you be reading only non-fiction this month? Why not have a go and share.
