Books Bought and Read – March 2018

Books Bought

Firstly this month, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge appeared in the post. I had pre-ordered this at xmas and I can’t wait to read it.

I then bought: Eat Up: Food, Appetite and Eating What You Want – Ruby Tandoh because I kept reading about it on twitter! and I really like food.

I also bought fellow physics teacher Alom Shaha’s new book: Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder: Adventures in Science Round the Kitchen Table. It’s a beautiful book that will help you do science at home with children.

I’m still trying not to buy more books, but I needed to get hold of a few for book clubs I have over the next few months. I needed to get This Must Be The Place by Maggie O’Farrell, and got The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne at the same time because I keep reading amazing reviews of it and clearly I just can’t help myself when it comes to buying more books…

I got Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller for the Continental book club next month,

and finally The Hidden Man by Robin Blake for this month! This is the American name for this book. It is called The Scrivener in the UK version, but that was more expensive!
