Some new Reference Books have arrived! Looking for something good to read? A new series of books has arrived at the Reference Desk which might be of interest to you! The series is called Bloomsbury Good Reading Guides and each volume features 100 Must-Read Books in different categories. So far we have:
100 Must-read Books for Men by Stephen E. Andrews, Duncan Bowis ; foreword by Toby Litt.
100 Must-Read Crime Novels by Richard Shephard and Nick Rennison.
100 Must-read Historical Novels by Nick Rennison.
100 Must-read Life-Changing Books by Nick Rennison.
100 Must-read Classic Novels by Nick Rennison.
In every volume so far I’ve discovered some author that I’d never heard of before, and sounds great! In the classic novels volume, for example, I read about a novel called Effi Briest by Theodore Fontane. Supposedly this is like the German version of Madame Bovery, but I’d never even heard of it before! I now have a copy on order for the library! Each volume also has a pithy introduction. I think I’m going to find lots of summer reading material here, and you know it is never too soon to start putting together a summer reading list!
