#47 Sharon Bertsch McGrayne: The theory that would not die.
This book tells about the birth and development of Bayesian statistics - an alternative way of statistical inference which is becoming used more and more often. Breaking the Enigma code is probably one of the more famous examples of its use. I found the beginning to be much faster paced and more engrossing, but it is a good book overall.

#48 Philippa Gregory: The White Princess.
Another good book. I wonder what she will do next, since she has already wrote about Catherine of Aragorn. But I have found Henry the VII and his mother to be completely repulsive and Elisabeth rather insipid. These characters can no doubt be logically explained by they are not inspiring protagonists.

#49 Kerry Greenwood: Urn Burial
Reading (or rather listening) on :)
