I bet most of us read a lot of historical non-fiction and like to discuss it, so let's share what we're currently reading and what we think/thought of it (hope there's no such thread already but I can't remember seeing it while I've been here).

Me, I'm currently reading The Last Mughal: The Fall of Delhi, 1857 by William Dalrymple. So far it's providing an extremely vivid image of colonial India and is a real joy to read. Let's see if it manages to live up to what it's promising.

And you?
