What will you be reading this “summer”? July 11, 2012Posted by Garibaldy in Books.
Summer definitely feels like the wrong word to describe what’s been going on of late, although I guess being stuck inside due to torrential rain offers an opportunity to catch up on reading. Not that, unlike previous years, I have a particular list of stuff I’m planning to read – actually reading the books on those earlier lists would be a good start.
Some books that might be of interest to people here anyway.
Belfast and Derry in Revolt: A New History of the Start of the Troubles by Simon Prince and Geoffrey Warner. I’m sure this will both be informative and raise some people’s blood pressure.
Rock and Popular Music in Ireland: Before and After U2. Likewise, if not more so.
Richer Than God: Manchester City, Modern Football and Growing Up Globalisation writ large. Conn’s stuff in The Guardian is always worth reading. Even if it isn’t about Shamrock Rovers and the Bohs.
