Picking Next Book, May 2021
It's time to pick another book. I propose either a selection of Tennyson's Arthurian Idylls or else Gulliver's Travels, which I have been intermittently rereading. My wife and I have been working through Herodotus after breakfast and have at last hit Book V, where we can turn from Scythians and Libyans and read about Macedonians and Greeks on the eve of the Ionian Revolt that leads to Darius' invasion of 490. This week I'll be welcoming expressions of preference on any of the above.
