aquisitions (as if the list wasn't big enough as it is now). I
already have I, Claudius on that list for a long time, but meanwhile
I have the first three of C. McCullough on my shelf, which I think
will take me into an earlier period.

simply fabulous and everyone should read it. Claudius The God is less good
but still excellent.

> Susan's experience would back that up.I agree with both of them. I gave up at half the book and I never do
that. I figure if I am that far I might as well finish riding the
horse. That horse did not make it to the end of the line. I even
gave the book to Goodwill.
