    What book will you read next

    Chatting to a friend the other day they specifically choose authors of 'diversity'. Unfortunately diversity seemed to mean skin colour. Most of the books were novels written by middle aged women - hardly diverse.

    The Expatriates by Janice Y.K. Lee Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

    When comparing the last 10 books we had read my 'random' choices appeared more varied but not ethnically diverse.

    What will you read next and do you have strategies on book choice.

    I've just ordered:
    A Modern Method for Guitar

    I'm very excited about it...I've been learning guitar for about 18 months now by playing songs...and as I was warned, I've hit a plateau because I can't read music or understand any of the theory really...

    I haven't read a novel in decades...I like 'Non-Fiction', especially travel/politics/religion/science or books that teach a new skill....

    The last 10 books I finished (in no particular order):

    - Tribal Leadership
    - Pirlo
    - China Rich Girlfriend
    - The Scarlet Gospels
    - Level Zero Heroes
    - American Sniper
    - Fear and Loathing in La Liga
    - Tales from the Secret Footballer
    - The Rape of Nanking
    - Thinking Fast and Slow

    ....so a pretty weird mix. I've still got over 300 books lined up which I've uploaded to Google Play Books.

    Would have been the next volume of A Song of Ice and Fire but he still has not finished it.

    Will be a 10 volume Story of the Filipino People due to be delivered tomorrow.

    I tend to read non fiction, with the odd fiction.
    Nothing to Envy - Barbara Demick
    Unbroken - Lauren Hillenbrand for Louis Zamperini
    North Korea - Paul French
    Lonely Planet travel guides
    There Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins
    Walking Home from Mongolia and Cycling Home from Siberia - both by Rob Lilwall.

    For anyone who likes historical fiction, The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah and All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr are both excellent.
