A few things today that I am really looking forward to:
- Not a book, but I am excited about it. I bought the first season of Downton Abbey after seeing a little of the first episode. Everybody talks about it. I want to know what all the hype is about – late as usual.
From the library
- Ancient Rome on Five Denarii a Day by Philip Matyszak. I love the idea of a modern kind of travel guide for Ancient Rome
- Our Tragic Universe by Scarlett Thomas (German: Das Ende der Geschichten). The cover attracted me and the blurb was promising.
