  1. How was that read like a writer? I picked it up a couple of times, and then said “nope” — Though, I’m all for book lists and did see that they had some in the back —


  2. Feliche, I liked it ok. I was a bit disappointed, expected more from the book than what it was. There were parts that were really good, but for the most part I found it just so-so


  3. Some great books here. I just read somewhere that a blogger listened to the Iliad on his/her iPod. Isn’t that a great idea?


  4. I’ve read none of these books! Its time to update my “to be read” pile…
