It's been sitting on my TBR pile for a while, and to celebrate the birth of my daughter I have decided that the time has come to read Churchill's Second World War memoirs. Between work, politics and changing soiled diapers I have found the time to read 170 pages of The Gathering Storm.
Well: I finished part 1, and I must say, Churchill does have singular command of the English language and certainly knows how to write. I am now 50 pages into Their finest hour.
I spotted a box set of Churchills History of the English Speaking Peoples at a booksale today, but unfortunately decided against it seeing as it was in poor condition (cover of the first volume was ripped off). Saddening. I could have used more Churchill after finishing his war memoirs two weeks ago.
