1946 set published from Limited Editions Collection. So beautiful. Originally published in the 1700s.
So far I'm loving the Decline and Fall what is your favorite history book? 🤔
You know you're a history nerd when this is a fun read. 😂 My amazing wife @Rachel.Rencher bought me the Decline and Fall series and I'm super excited to start it! 😆
I'm stopping #24in48
I'm going to have to listen to my body, and just quit the challenge; my disability and chronic pain is too severe today. I hit 13hrs and I'm over the moon about that. But I have no choice but to rest.
Good luck to all of you continuing, and I appreciate all your encouragement.
Slowly, slowly... Still making progress but just very slowly. Any advice on how to get through very long books would be appreciated!
Thanks to a severe migraine (ugh) I've been struggling to get anything done. Today seems to be an improvement (yay) so I'm aiming to get the next chapter of this masterpiece complete.
I need to resume my progress with the #HRPGBingo so any recommendations for #Gauntlet (ie: a book with time travel) would be much appreciated!
So, I used one of my #Audible credits today on this slim book. ???! Reminds me of the "Home Alone" quote, "Do you give up, or are you thirsty for more?" ? Bring it ??! Anyone want to #buddyread this one with me ????? With an irregular schedule like mine though, I never know when I'll get to the next listening session, and I tend to listen at 1.25 speed.
I was pleased to find this on sale today. I've been having terrible insomnia lately, and a 1,300+ page history text seems an ideal soporific.
Anyone else out there combatting #insomnia with really boring books? What's your go-to?
The five marks of the Roman decaying culture:
Concern with displaying affluence instead of building wealth;
Obsession with sex and perversions of sex;
Art becomes freakish and sensationalistic instead of creative and original;
Widening disparity between very rich and very poor;
Increased demand to live off the state.
