Devoted to knowledge — 5 years ago
This is an excellent book, a collection of intellectual potpourri that provides a bite-sized daily serving. Each day of the week is devoted to a different theme: history, literature, music, art, science, philosophy, and religion. As a result, I’ve already added several books to my to-read list and acquired various trivia tidbits in each of the other categories. (Who knew that Mark Twain wrote a book about Joan of Arc, which he considered his best work? I definitely need to track that one down.)
I did not manage to complete this book before it was due back to the library (there are 365 entries, after all), but I’ve read enough of it to know that it’s worth purchasing my own copy. Highly recommended!
