Reading progress update: I've read 191 out of 529 pages.
The Mitford Girls: the biography of an extraordinary family - Mary S. Lovell

What I love about reading non-fiction? It opens up the pandora box to even more non-fiction that you can read about a certain topic:

 

Ich blätterte gerade in der Vogue, da sprach mich der Führer an: Unity Mitford, eine Biography - Michaela Karl 

 

All of the Mitford Sisters are fascinating, but I really want to know more about Unity Valkyrie Mitford, conceived in Swastika, Canada.

The Mitford Girls: the biography of an extraordinary family - Mary S. Lovell

She [Nancy] had given a smart little party there for Evelyn Gardner when the latter became engaged to Evelyn Waugh ("who writes, I believe, very well") in 1928. After the two Evelyns were married, the complication of their names was resolved by the simple expedient of of referring to them as He-Evelyn and She-Evelyn.

 

LoL. That´s horrible!

I can´t remember which Mitford Sister gets mentioned in Tilar Mazzeo´s "The Hotel on Place Vendome", probably Diana, but this really inspired me to pick this biography about the Mitford sisters up next. And I´m really in the mood to read a (hopefully) good piece of non-fiction.

Bess of Hardwick: Empire Builder
Bess of Hardwick: Empire Builder - Mary S. Lovell Lots and lots of meaningless detail. From this account Bess is actually kind of boring.
