Book Spotlight and Blog Tour: Sometimes in Bath by Charles Nevin

Charles Nevin seems to have hit upon a promising idea: exploring the world of Bath through the use of fiction. I enjoy short stories, and I think it is very clever that each short story is followed by an afterword that separates the fact from the fiction. What a great way to teach history through the use of literature!

Happy Publication Day: High Heels and Beetle Crushers, a Womanist Cold War Memoir by Jackie Skingley

Skingley's book is a compelling memoir of post-war Britain and her experience there as a woman in the armed forces. I am particularly interested in reading this book because I enjoy reading about strong female leaders who aren't afraid to chase their dreams. The world needs more women who lead, and Skingley's story is an important piece of modern history.
