This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.

  1. Neat list and, unusually, with several titles I’ve read and even enjoyed! The Golden Ass, Volsungsaga, Cymbeline, Songs of Innocence & Experience, First Men in the Moon. Are you hoping for one in particular?


    1. I didn’t get a chance to reply in time, but – it’s #6 so that’s Troilus & Cressida! I hope I can also fit in the Volsungasaga sometime in the next month; this will be a different translation than the one I read the first time so I’m interested to see how it compares.

      1. Troilus and Cressida I’ve yet to tackle, so I’ll be eagerly awaiting your opinion! I’m hoping to reread my copy of the Volsungsaga [apologies for the missing ‘a’ above] which happens to be the Penguin translation; I read it in conjunction with the Hrolf Kraki saga which they also published around the same time. Then maybe I’ll get back to the Nibelungenlied after a break of several decades!
