This post was brought to you by my Xmas book tokens

The year is off to a good start with Eric Hobsbawm's The age of capital 1848-1875.

I bought this with my Christmas book token along with the first two volumes of Victor Klemperer's diaries, I shall bear witness 1933-41, and To the bitter end 1941-45. I'm not very good at reading diaries. I get bored and dip in and out looking for interesting bits.
