Weekly Book Wrap Up Nov, 21

One book away from my goal. Actually I think its two because I didn't finish a book I started because it was so bad. A book has to be pretty bad for me not to finish it and stick to my 50 page rule. Give a book 50 pages to tell a story and if after that it doesn't improve, bin it :p

Typography 32Typography 32 by Type Directors Club
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

really nice book, full of great colour photos and lots of different ideas for typography :)

North and SouthNorth and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like Pride and Prejudice, but not as posh :p

Glad to see N&S rated a 5!!! I just stopped reading a book after three pages because it was written in a backwoodsy accent and I could not for the life of me read it without having to understand every single word. I think you should cut yourself some book slack!!!

I like Elizabeth Gaskell. I had to read 'Mary Barton' for a history class and it was quite striking.

I've read books like that, can be a pain in the butt trying to understand it and can be really gimmicky :/
