Since 1 January 2018 I have placed 27 book reviews onto this site. Not as many as in 2017, but still an interesting range and variety. As those who follow me will be aware, the titles reviewed cover a wide range of subjects and receive varying ratings out of a scale of 1-10, with 1 being very poor and 10 being excellent.
On the basis of the gradings / ratings received, I thought that it would again be fun to list the Top Ten Titles of 2018. They appear below:
Port of London (Stone)
Captain Elliot and the Founding of Hong Kong (Bursay)
River Gunboats (Branfill-Cook)
A Marine Artist’s Portfolio: The nautical paintings of Susanne Fournais (Fournais-Grube)
A History of Birds (Wills)
Escorting the Monarch (Jagger)
Around Britain By Canal: 1000 Miles of Waterways (Burton)
Rebuilding the Welsh Highland Railway: Britain’s Longest Heritage Line (Johnson)
Duel Under The Stars: The Memoir of a Luftwaffe Night Pilot in World War II (Johnen)
Cathedrals of Britain: North of England & Scotland (Fallon)
Tempting though it might be, and out of respect to both the titles and the authors, I will not be listing those titles which received the poorest ratings. Should you wish to know what these might be, you are, of course, quite welcome to trawl through the individual entries.
A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL and thanks for visiting this site.
