A few of my loyal readers would remember my post ‘In Seventh Heaven Awaiting Under Heaven’ from way back in December where I described the wait to the release of the latest book by one of my favourite authors. I finally have the book. Signed by the great man himself. Inscribing with his own hands one of my most cherished quotes from his books. (All this thanks to the effort of a dear friend- hannon le mellon nin!) Eh voila!
One can expect this book to jump all existing to-read book queues and get right to the top of the list- weekend here I come!
Another book (or pair of books) that is not likely to get to the top of my reading pile anytime soon but that will be in no way less cherished by me is a second edition publication of the complete works of Horace in French and (hold your breath!) Latin published in (this is amazing!) 1660! Pure treasure..its a privilege even to be able to hold something 350 years old. Once again hannon le mellon nin!
