What about Ancient Greece literature? Since October 2015 I read Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Thucydides, etc. Still read Aristophanes. Very intersting dive into the ancient world.
Anyone read it?


The furthest back I've gone is the Roman Plutarch's Lives.  Oh, and Aesop's Fables.

After this one it's on to To Kill a Mockingbird which I somehow have never read before.

I loved To Kill a Mockingbird

I never have either but always have intended to read it. I read a lot but I'm not particularly well-read if that makes sense. Right now I'm finishing a bio on Ruth Lyons, who was a pioneering radio and TV personality in Cincinnati. I stumbled upon her on YouTube and found her quite interesting!

I've never been able to finish The Chronicles of Amber due to studying, but I'm dying to read it as I'm a fan of fantasy. Although only getting to about the second chapter of Nine Princes in Amber, it seemed really interesting and it also seemed wonderfully uncomplicated in the way it was written and relatively easy to take in. Sadly, it's still waiting on the bookshelf, dusting away, haha.


I usually don't like first-person narrative, but it really works here.

I just finished The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny.  It is a very different fantasy series, nothing like the typical medieval genre fantasy that's out there.

I loved To Kill a Mockingbird, but sadly, nobody else in my family (children, sister, nephew, former spouse) liked it. I'll be curious to hear what you think of it.

My book group is reading The Screwtape Letters, and I am finding it both fascinating and confusing because of its unique perspective. C.S. Lewis was certainly brilliant.

I'm sure I'll love it, always heard great things about it and I love the film version with Gregory Peck, although I'm sure it doesn't measure up to the book. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read a single book by C.S. Lewis either! I'll be sure to put him on my list of authors to read.  icon_good

Looks nice, Dave! I bet it'll be gorgeous with the hydrangea.
It's south facing with some shade during the afternoon. Should be just right! I hope!
