I'm reading a spanish book, still not  translated, called "El infinito en un junco" = Infinity in a reed"

It's about the invention of books, libraries and so in the ancient world. I go by Alexander the Great now.

Yes, it is!

This is what an english speaker post on Amazon about it:
"5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic travel
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 20, 2020
One of the best books I've read in a long time. For those who love reading, or just are curious about the origins of books, this is a must-have. It is not only about the origins of books per se, but of thousands of related ideas about books: how were they organised, transferred, or simply preserved, and how everything shaped human civilisation as we know it today. Every page is full of insight and inspiration, and it's one of these books you will go back for sure.
Hopefully, it will be translated into English soon so more people are able to read it." :D

And the author is a girl from Zaragoza!!

I just started Origin by Dan Brown.
It's been on my to-read list for awhile, but I had to read the previous one first (Inferno)

It's been a long while- I think I've read all of Dan Brown's books.  All of them good.  Hmm  should revisit them. I'm not reading anything right now really other than...Uh..won't mention that or Blizzie will pick on me LOL.

I think the last book I did read may have been Hidden Figures.
Numerics: 20/40 (need to redo)
Decade: 5/10
Secret: 0 I have no clue...

I never pick on anyone for reading!! :lmmfao:

I just ordered 160 books from "Books by the foot" and ended up paying less than 50 cents each for them. so my TBR is quite long now.
