The printing press, Discworld-style.
A rather extraordinary book about happiness and its sources. And by extraordinary I mean it makes you see the world in a different way, always a good trait for a book.
Nice little review of the period, with a focus on the Mediterranean and the Near East.
I seem to be reading short stories these days. A nice collection here.
I’ll have to read more Carver.
A terrifically told tale of a terrible, terrible time.
