I belong to a few book clubs and I haven't seen much in a while worth ordering less reading. You need to have some one refer you(these days) to a good book or you will never find out about it.
That actually sounds interesting. I might look it up next trip to the library.
Make and effort to read no more than 10 pages at a time.
It's what is known as a `hard read.`
It is excellent, but Lady Pakenham (Ms. Longford) is a relative, can say little bad about Mr. Wellesley...........and it was written in the 60s. It might be hard to find.....I got it in a used book store.
More interesting as popular history was Napolean and Wellington, by Andrew Roberts . recent, so easier to find.
I read history almost exclusively.........
My current reading is a mishmash.
Immune correlates of stress and sleep deprivation
The Mind/Body connection
Assorted other articles and texts on psychoneuroimmunology
I'm going to try to read At the Mountains of Madness by HP Lovecraft.
