    1. If I didn’t have books in my life then I would feel unfulfilled and my life would be boring. I don’t want to watch idiots on reality TV, I want to get inside the minds of literary geniuses, read and write.


  2. Marc Morris is a great writer of popular histories. His book on the Norman conquest is superb, and his biography of John slightly less so. I will have to pick up that bio of Edward.

    1. I loved all 3 of the main early Epic’s. Aeneid and Iliad are truly amazing. I think Odyssey is good fun too. I liked following Virgil in Dante’s Inferno too and seeing which circles famous people are in πŸ™‚
