...which takes me to:

 

17. Why?
Read a book that is non-fiction or a book with the word "why" in the title.

 

Excellent! The only problem with non-fiction is that it is difficult to choose, but given that I've only just finished a science-related read and that all the way through that book I longed to read a history book, this narrows the field. But not much. 

However, since the UK is getting a new PM on Tuesday this week ... (oh, gee, do we have to?) ... I'm going to be inspired by current affairs and read about a story of competitiveness, jealousy, and power. Tho, my book choice will be set at the height of the British Empire. To be fair, that probably also falls into the category of "relevant to current affairs". 

Ugh,...
