Changing it up a bit this week and going with non-fiction. Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded August 27, 1883 by Simon Winchester tells about the build-up, explosion and aftermath of this volcanic island (redundancy at its best, that phrase is). I’m hoping to learn something and not get bogged down in scientific and geographical terms. Darn those! Join Ginny and the other ladies over at Small Things for Yarn Along.
