#SomethingYouSawOnLitsy

A book that is ideal to be dipped into. I preferred the second section of the book to the first as some of the letters in the first tried a bit too hard to be funny.
Overall a decent read with occasional chuckles and a definite increase in my TBR.
Tagging this as my #somethingyousawonlitsy for #nonfiction2019

Cleopatra: A Life | Stacy Schiff

There is no doubt that in this book is a lot of research work, and without doubt that Schiff despise Cicero and she obviously have the urge to defend Cleopatra from the evil, bad, wicked ... historians (from the Roman‘s era) and misininterpretaions of the history. And this is where my dissatisfaction lies - double standards. In her arguments, Schiff does exactly the same what she is accusing the others Cleopatra‘ biographers.

Cinfhen Ugh, frustrating 😩 10mo
Simona @Cinfhen I was very surprised with the high ratings at Goodreads, but I didn‘t have the time to read what others said about it ... 10mo
DivineDiana I loved this book! 🤷🏼‍♀️ 10mo
Simona @DivineDiana It is very readable, but with the poor argumentation... 10mo

I learned a lot about the rare book world, reading this book.But John Gilkey, a book thief, made me so angry I had to put the book down & walk away a few times. I unfortunately have personal experience with manipulators & know how they justify every bad thing they do. Written very well, the author tried to be impartial, it‘s a good read. My #SomethingYouSawOnLitsy for #NonFiction2019 & #ReceivedInALitsySwap for LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #MountTBR2019

Traci1 I found this guy interesting (not in a good way) because it seemed like his "obsession" really could have been anything. He landed on books, but it seemed to me he could just have easily decided he wanted to collect rare coins or stamps or beanie babies. 11mo

My next book is also doing triple duty in reading challenges. For #NonFiction2019 its #SomethingYouSawOnLitsy its #Bk3 on #MtKilimanjaro #MountTBR2019 its #ReceivedInALitsySwap in #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 John Charles Gilkey is a rare book thief, not for money, because he loves books so much he‘s willing to go to prison for them. Ken Sanders is the investigator who‘s out to catch him. This is about the cat & mouse game that follows.
