Been shamefully neglecting this site, but I have been reading and listening to audio books. Books read over the last couple of months include Seabiscuit, and several of the volumes in Colleen McCullough's First Man in Rome series about the life of Julius Caesar. I'm currently making notes from a couple of books about the life of Sir Walter Ralegh. Since the library copies I've been using have to be returned, I broke down and ordered myself a copy of Sir Walter Ralegh by Robert Lacey. Also ordered two books about magic and necromancy in ancient Rome by Daniel Ogden.

Memorable audiobooks include Salt, Band of Brothers, The Devil in White City, and a two- volume history of Rome by Cyril Robinson.
