This is a weird one, even for me. This is a non-fiction book about the man who devised the Beaufort Scale of wind strengths. I confess that the first time I saw this scale (1 to 10 with examples and speeds) was in Girl Scouts and I was fascinated by it. I had picked up this book, then forgot about it, until this week when I was going through all my books. So far, I'm enjoying it.
