I like to read across a wide range of topics, everything under the sun, really. Sadly, my daily tube journey isn't long enough to read as much as I'd like to, though my ever expanding bookshelf would probably disagree.
I'm just about to finish Gore Vidal's 'Inventing a Nation' on America's founding fathers. It's very informative and well-written. Vidal demonstrates a broad knowledge on the early American republic and also draws parallels to contemporary governments. The way he describes Washington, Jefferson & co makes me feel as if I were walking through colonial Philadelphia. Oh, and it's quite refreshing to read a book that's just over 200 pages long... Up until now, it's a very enjoyable read, I think Washington's biography just made it on my list of future reads.
I am a big fan of non-fiction, as I don't seem to have the patience to read novels (I always jump ahead to see how the story ends...). Looking forward to meeting like-minded people in London!
