Books read during my sabbatical years - July 2006 to August 2007 & July 2012 to August 2013.
Why wait for another sabbatical? I've set a goal to read 53 books in 2014.

95. The Other British Isles by David W. Moore
A History of Shetland, Orkney, the Hebrides, Isle of Man, Anglesey, Scilly, Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. With chapters about each of the islands or archipelagos, this book spans early Neolithic settlement; Roman, Norse and Norman occupation; Medieval, Tudor and Stuart eras; to modern political and economic history. This book is well researched and documented, however I found it a difficult to get through sections that I was not particularly interested in.
