Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
This wasn't quite what I was expecting (though by this point I've forgotten what exactly I was expecting) - it is a collection of Mary Beard's book reviews for various magazines and journals, over a period of about 20 years. (Mary Beard is a distinguished classicist; I have read her excellent Fires of Pompeii, which I recommend, and have SPQR waiting.)
It therefore covers a wide range of subjects, from Arthur Evans' excavations at Knossos to Greco-Roman joke books, what 19th-century British tourists expected to see or need in Greece and at Pompeii, and Roman-style fortune telling (popular questions included "will I get sold?" and "have I been poisoned?" as well as the eternal "is my wife cheating on me?").
I liked some chapters better than others (as is inevitable with such a collection), but they were all interesting. It made good bedtime reading, as no chapter was terribly long, and they were on a wide variety of subjects.
Also, some of the books that were reviewed looked very interesting. (The Dictionary of British Classicists probably excluded.)
