My bookish Christmas gifts

Two bookish gifts for me that I am really looking forward to read and watch:

A cabinet of Roman curiosities

A cabinet of Roman curiosities by J.C. McKeown.

This one has been on my wishlist for a long time. In structure it reminds me a bit of Schott’s Miscellany, in that it is just a number of “strange tales and surprising facts”.

 

Night train to Lisbon

 

The movie “Night train to Lisbon” with Jeremy Irons. I just hope they didn’t butcher the wonderful Nachtzug nach Lissabon by Pascal Mercier. Relying on Bille August here.

Will be watching it tonight.

  1. The Cabinet of Roman Curiousities sounds most interesting, I have now bookmarked it and will have to find a copy. Thanks for dropping by for a visit. It was about 2 days after the ice storm that I was out walking and took that photo. There is a lot of ice on the tree in front of the church, so the tree is bent over quite a bit. Usually it would block the view of the Steeple.
