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.

111. Curing Hiccups with Small Fires by Karl Shaw
A fascinating and diverse collection of British eccentrics from scientists to athletes to aristocrats. Many, like Charles Darwin, Barbara Cartland and Oliver Reed are well known today, others are much more obscure. Unfortunately, although it has a bibliography, the book lacks an index.
