Reading for 50,000 bedtimes


Looking for a really big read? Try the the new Oxford edition of the Dictionary of National Biography, just 60 volumes, about 50,000 articles and 60,000 pages. A snap at £6,500, or online for £195 per year. A magnificent work of scholarship and publishing, but I’ll wait until the library buys one – or I could put an extra room on the house?
