52 Book Challenge: Week Eight

Switching back to non-fiction this week.  Re-reading the two L’Engle books was interesting, but it proved to me that I prefer the ‘higher’ works these days.  Literature and –dare I say– the whole non-fiction bit that gave me fits earlier in this challenge.  The idea of reading non-fiction simply out of interest in the subject helped me tremendously.

This week’s book is related to my shameless Downton Abbey addiction.  It is Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey by the Countess of Carnavron.  It’s a bit more involved than the other non-fiction I’ve read so far, as it has quite alot of historical information.  I’m quite keen on learning it, though.

Another strategy tip: divide books in to equal sections and note the sections so that you know you’re keeping on pace.  For me, it’s been overwhelming and somewhat nerve-wracking to try to keep track of that without having definite guidelines.

Happy reading, all!
