You made me realise I bought this book a while ago on my kindle and haven’t got around to reading it, I totally forgot!!jkbarnes wrote:I switched directions. I picked up a book that I thought would make for slightly lighter reading at the beach. I bought this ages ago but never got around to it - A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage.
It’s fantastic! He’s essentially connecting various stages in world history to drinks that played a significant role in that period: beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola. It’s got enough legitimate history to not be fluff but not so much as to be academic. Highly recommend!
I’m on holiday at the moment so have plenty of time.
