1)They Came To Baghdad by Agatha Christie: Agatha moves her mystery from England to Baghdad in the late 50s/eraly 60s, when it was still a real city. Interesting change of pace.
2)Cleese Encounters by Jonathan Margolies: Not all Python & Fawlty, a very complex man, who sems to be funny only when HE wants to be.
3)What Might Have Been vol.III & IV by Gregory Benford & Martin H Greenberg,eds: Alternate Wars & Alternate Americas, best taken in small doses.
4)Message To Love: Isle Of Wight Festival 1968-69-70 by Brian Hinton: Interesting overview of the original 3 years of England's Woodstock. Both onstage, backstage, and behind the scenes stories; it should have been a bigger book.
5)Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett: More mayhem and humor on the Discworld.
6)The Vikings by Howard La Fay: National Geographic looks at the Vikings. Gorgeous pictures, artist renderings, historical background and present day descendents. Great starter book for those with little or no real knowledge except from movies.
