Books: 1215: The Year of the Magna Carta by Danny Danziger and John Gillingham

October 19, 2006

I finished this book a few days ago. Having found Danziger’s The Year 1000 to be a fun and at least somewhat informative read, I sucked 1215 up, too. It was too similar to 1000 to really get me on fire. I bet I’d have the same thing to say about The Year 1000 if I had read 1215 first.

This marks book number 10 since Sept. 1st.

Now I’m reading Joyce Carol Oates’ Blonde and Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United States. Both are long and both are good (at least so far), so it may be some time before I finish them. Yay reading.

Oh, in other book news, my library is exactly 499 books now (according to my Delicious Library software). It’s agonizingly hard not to run out and buy just one more book.
