BOOK 45-48

BOOK 45: Leaving Microsoft to Change the World by John Wood (autobiography) yellow staryellow staryellow star
The story of one man's journey from working in the corporate world to helping children in developing countries. Explains how an ordinary man can change his life in a positive way which ends up benefitting the world's children through reading. Well worth reading

BOOK 46: Temple by Matthew Reilly (adventure) yellow staryellow staryellow star
An action packed book where the drama never stops. A bit like Indiana Jones where you have to leave your logic behind and just go along for the ride.

BOOK 47: A Respectable trade by Phillippa Gregory (drama) yellow staryellow staryellow star
An interesting story that centres on the slave trade that existed in England. It looks at the slave trade through modern eyes although it is set in the past. A good tale.

BOOK 48: The Drunkards Walk by Leonard Mlodinow (non- fiction) yellow staryellow staryellow staryellow star
I have enjoyed reading a lot of non fiction this year and this one adds to the list. It explains how randomness rules our lives. At first there is a little too much math and logic type information for me but it gets better as it goes. Very interesting.
