About This Class

This class is part of the Focus on Language Series. It suggests three non-fiction books that are worthwhile reads and gives you an overview of each. The first is a business book, the second a history book and the third a contemporary book on today's world. 

As a bonus, there is also a suggestion for a great mystery series for your resting and relaxation time! (You do have some, don't you?)

Each of the books recommended has won awards, but you may not have discovered them yet! Join the class for an introduction to some new treasures in the world of reading.

What a really interesting class! I had not heard of any of these books before and I shall certainly be checking out a couple of them now, thanks to this class.
