    I'm currently reading Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome.

    As they say, a book is a magic portal to another dimension.

        Looks as if it will be "Blowing up Russia" by Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky.

        That's sat on the shelf for years too, though probably not as many years as the Project Orion book.
        Almost unreadable alphabet soup.

        Instead: "very special intelligence" by Patrick Beesly.

        A tale of the way Room 40 transmogrified into something else during WWII by someone who was there.

        Written just as the first books about Bletchley Park were being published.

          Done: next: The Vitamin Murders by James Fergusson: the murders in France in 1952 of the Drummond family. (Seems like an easy read, must have matured on the shelf for about 10 years or so).

          A Brief History of Science by Thomas Crump. The existence of a preface of some 20 pages may bode ill on this one.

                Done: next: The subterranean railway by Christian Wolmar, being the history of the London Underground.

                Probably not as easy a read as the Vitamins book but probably easier than The Brief History of Science has proved to be. .

                  Just finished

                  Dead in the Water: Murder and Fraud in the World's Most Secretive Industry – a really good read on an investigation into a hijacked tanker

                  The Glass Hotel – fiction novel by the author of Station Eleven, not quite sure what I think of it but tempted to read it again (was read on a long overnight flight)

                      Done. Quite inneresting in its way, lots of places I've never heard of & dunno where they are.

                      Next: "Drugs of Hallucination" by Sidney Cohen.

                      Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
