However, I dislike being forced to read. This book shelf represents an overdose of a subject in a short period of time. I was working on my MA in Leadership and some courses had eight books in total to read plus a list of other recommended readings. This shelf doesn't represent the totality of the reading required for the courses because there were online journal articles, published papers and theses to research.
And it wasn't just the reading. We had to then take all that information, compare it, think critically about it and then write massive papers on our own opinions. Sheesh! After that I was totally put off reading information books for a long while.
Instead, I immersed myself in the mystery of a good whodunnit. Like the books on this shelf, I took some I hadn't read in a few years and started them again. Later moving on to my favourites like Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and good old Harry Potter.
My next revisit might be the Victorian world of Amelia Peabody Emmerson and her hunky hubby, Radcliffe as they discover the next body in Egypt. Titles such as The Guardian at the Gate, The Mummy Case and The Last Camel Died at Noon and written by Elizabeth Peters, are well written in what I've found to be the most authentic Victorian voice. The information this professor of Egyptology provides makes the stories all the more interesting and entertaining.
