I found a really cool thing while perusing A Ticket To Anywhere's blog site.
It's called Blog a Penguin Classic. What you do is:
1) Go to the website: Blog A Penguin Classic
2) Sign up
3) They send you a random Penguin Classic for free! (while supplies last)
4) Within six weeks of receiving the book you write a short blog about the book
My book is Chekhov's The Steppe and Other Stories, 1887-91 which is super cool because I love Russian authors and have been wanting to read Chekhov!
I got H to sign up and he's going to have to read Ammianus Marcellinus's The Later Roman Empire: (A.D. 354-378). How scary! He'll do it though which is cool :)
So check it out! You'll never know what you'll get and who knows....you may just enjoy it!
