Alas, I‘ve started volume 2. Should take me two months to crawl through it.
No clue what I‘m doing awake at 1:30 am, even the cats asleep, but I finished the first volume of Plutarch‘s Lives. 49 hours of reading over two months and 4 days. I can‘t say I recommend it, but it does end at the best part - Crassus‘s loss of his life and entire army to the Parthian horsemen in the Battle of Carrhae in 53 bce.
