Have just finished Dunces, Gourmands, and Petticoats and am mentioning it because someone here--anna, maybe?--seemed interested in a book I mentioned previously about word usage. A good & a fascinating collection of selected English words whose meanings have changed over the centuries. You want a 'snack'? Whyever would you want to be bitten by a dog? e.g.

>15 tropics: Nope.

I've seen here & elsewhere several references to books about Trump but never one to Trump and Me, an enjoyable book written 10 or so years ago. Author's conclusion was that Trump has no interior life. In any case I'm reading a very good, thought-provoking extended philosophical essay I suppose you'd call it: The Encyclopaedia of Stupidity.

>17 tropics:

Neiwert is a sage observer of reactionaries and racists in the US. I'd expect that book to be scary.

Paradoxosalpha: You're right; the information contained therein is quite disturbing.

Hello
New here You have some fascinating sounding books on Trump

I have to buy most of my books from charity stalls and garage sales, these days, so might have to wait a while in Oz, to find them.

I havent seen many people listing mainly non fiction and I have a particular interest in Bomber Command /WW2
