I’ve not really kept up with my Non-Fiction November this year but I did read four non-fiction books and I wrote two reviews. I promise the rest of them will be up next month when I have more time.
This week’s prompt is hosted by Doing Dewey. Most of what I added to my wishlist was from the Goodreads Choice awards although so many participants recommended Educated, I am certainly going to try and read it next year. The others , I have no idea where I heard about them. I say every year I need to make a note when I add books to my wishlist but clearly I did not do that once again.
Talking to My Daughter About the Economy by Yanis Varoufakis: This was a great, easy to understand introduction to economics and capitalism, going into the history of money and markets at the same time.
In Miniature by Simon Garfield: A look at different miniature things, from villages to trains and souvenirs. I would have liked this more as an illustrated book (I listened to the audiobook) as there was a lot of explaining what things looked like.
Empire of Booze by Henry Jeffreys: Very interesting look at the history of alcoholic drinks as influenced by the British. I love the fact that these kind of microhistories also teach me a bit about regular history but with some context.
