Book preference: #second-hand #non-fiction #hardbacks
always usually have a book (or two… or three) on the go (okay, I try to limit myself to one at a time unless they are considerably different). The challenge for me is to find the time (and sometimes motivation) to write about what intrigues me whilst reading them.
The Children’s Encyclopedia by Arthur Mee
Since I’ve owned a 10 volume set of these old encyclopdias since my childhood, but never read them, I thought I would read one volume a year. For 2018 I have the target of working my way through Volume 6, reading 1/12th of the volume each month.
Here’s a recent blog post of interest:
