So, today I learned that
a. Mt. Everest was named for, but not by, George Everest.
b. George Everest was actually a proponent of learning the local name of mountains he surveyed, rather than coming up with new English names.
and c. He hated it when people pronounced his name Ever-est, rather than Eve-rest.

Just a #prettycover appreciation post before I dive into this re-read. The end papers even match the floral design of the letters:)

… And a lovely afternoon at Munro‘s. I definitely went in just for a calendar, but Christmas books were on sale, and who could resist that forest stories book? Not me, apparently. #bookhaul

“The past is the ultimate abyss.”

bibliothecarivs I have always loved this quote from Simon Schama: 'Historians are left forever chasing shadows, painfully aware of their inability ever to reconstruct a dead world in its completeness however thorough or revealing their documentation. We are doomed to be forever hailing someone who has just gone around the corner and out of earshot.' 2mo

Last book of 2023: Persuasion, the last in my Jane Austen reread.
First book started in 2024: Finally getting around to Imagining Head-Smashed-In, which I think I bought in 2018.

So, if Henry III was the one appointing the popes, did he dismiss one for buying the title from…himself? Bold move, Henry, bold move.

Pickpick

I enjoy Bown‘s writing style and his ability to concisely convey complex histories, while still providing interesting details. In this case, he tells the story of the building of the CPR. However, this may only be a pick for history buffs. See the previous quotes I posted to get a sense of the writing.
