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.
I recently read The Riddle of the Labyrinth, which is about ancient Greece and Crete, the Minoans and Myceneans, linguistics, and the decipherment of Linear B.
Here is what GR thought that meant I'd like:

I'm still giggling. That recommendations engine of theirs still needs some work, if this is anything to go by!
