Book It! 2007

Book 8, finally: The Thirty Years' War by C.V. Wedgewood.

This is a really good book. This is a really long book. This is a big, long, depressing book about a war that didn't really solve the problems that started it, despite killing loads of people, causing immense suffering, and dragging on for so long. Maybe that's why it took me so long to finish it. But again, a good book. C.V. Wedgewood (of the china Wedgewoods) was one of the most prominent women historians of the early part of the 1900s, and I'd love to find some of her other books.

So... back to reading about rock music. Or maybe some Calvino.
