The holidays are over and I thought it might be fun to do some bookshelf Show & Tell. Here’s a list of what I found at the bottom of my stocking (in no particular order):
- In the Wake of the Plague: The Black Death & the World It Made by Norman F. Cantor
- The Berlin-Baghdad Express: The Ottoman Empire & Germany’s Bid for World Power by Sean McMeekin
- Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson & Her Family’s Feuds by Lyndall Gordon
- Krakatoa – The Day the World Exploded: August 27, 1883 by Simon Winchester
- Nada: A Novel by Carmen Laforet (translated by Edith Grossman)
- Life by Keith Richards (audiobook narrated by Johnny Depp)
That’s a whole lotta non-fiction! The two books I’m most excited about are the Emily Dickinson bio and The Berlin-Baghdad Express (I’m a complete sucker for WWI history).
