I’m a bit of a fan of ‘titbit’ books that you can pick up; gain something useful from by way of inspiration, information, motivation and probably any other of a hundred other words ending in –ion; and put down without worrying about losing your place!

I was in quandary on what to read. Thanks to this book, I am discovering books I would have passed on before. Some of the books are hard to find but worth the effort to locate.

check the measurements of the book and was surprised by it's smallness BUT it is great for the info given and it quickly arrived.
Good, helpful selection
Very good selection of historical novels, a helpful guide. I found what I was looking for, including some unexpected finds that otherwise I would not have come across.
A good guide to historical novels
It leaves out some historical novels that I would have put in such as Drums along the Mohawk. But it directed me to many that I had never heard of.
