Obsessions aside, the month won't just be taken up with the South, England, and the Great War (as themes collide...) I also wanted to do a few books on trade, commerce, and the like, including Why We Buy. It's going to be a good month, I think. Happy reading!
- An Ice Cream War, William Boyd (historical fiction set in the Great War's African front)
- I'll Take my Stand: the South and the Agrarian Tradition (collected essays defending the South's agrarian tradition against industrialism)
