Bookshelf Show & Tell: The Holiday Edition

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).

Use the comments below if you’d like to do some Bookshelf Show & Tell of your own.  🙂
