The Sea
An anthology of short stories and articles with a connection to the sea. Includes a history of lighthouse building in Scotland, a story of ghosts in the middle of the Atlantic, building the QE2, and a story of a shark-chasing journalist in Australia.
Not bad, I suppose, some of the factual ones were quite interesting. The one about the wave that swept a small boy away was a bit scary!
Score: 6.5

Tell You What: Great NZ Nonfiction
True stories from a range of Kiwi writers, bloggers, journalists etc. All short little pieces 3-6 pages long or so.
Mostly pretty good, some particularly interesting ones on childbirth and disabilities, the Christchurch earthquake, Kim Dotcom, buying a house in crazy Auckland prices! Secret Santa gift from Darren (haven't drunk the lovely bottle of wine yet).
