Friday Procrastination

This Friday’s procrastination idea is stolen from 5th Estate, a wonderful blog run by Press Books. Below is an A-Z list of books worth reading. You may notice that the topics range from classics to politics to religion and back again. Don’t worry, there is some logic, all the books are published by Oxford University Press. I think this list should keep you busy reading all year. If you have read any of these books please feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you thought.
