Angel Wow, I thought I knew a good number of microhistories, but this list has a bunch of stuff that looks like good reading. I will be looking some of these up. :)

message 7: by Daphne (new)

Daphne This is one of my favorite lists! There are so many on here I want to read already or have already completed.

Guess I know where my preferences lie!

Definitely my favorite list as well. Why not find wonder in unexpected places?


message 9: by OddModicum Rachel (last edited Aug 01, 2014 05:42PM) (new)

OddModicum Rachel Oh wow... Brilliant. List. So many of these look outrageously good, and I'm primarily a reader of fiction, even. 'The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York' by Deborah Blum. Oh yes, please! I recently stumbled on a book about the history life and times of Ketchup, of all things, but haven't read it yet. ;)


message 10: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Isn't this supposed to be for non-fiction? Can we delete the fiction books?


message 11: by HeavyReader (new)

HeavyReader Great list! I want to read 85% of books on it.

I think that would be a very good idea.


message 13: by Rashmi (new)

Rashmi Priya thanks to goodreads, that i stumbled upon this list. it contains many quirky/interesting titles out of which each one of us could find something to read for sure.

Dana If this List walked into a room, I would have told it, "Shut up. Just...shut up. You had me at hello. [sniffles] You had me...at hello."
