Ignoring my own suggestion, which didn't meet with a whole lot of approval, and so I wouldn't have to keep renewing, I uploaded The Memoirs of Cleopatra this evening. Although long--964 pages--it's an easy and interesting read, once one gets into it. I was more emotionally involved with Desiree (in the collection; whether that's because of the difference in the authors' styles or the difference between a "memoir" and a "diary." But I did enjoy this and learned a lot, in a "fun" way, about Cleopatra, Caesar, Marc Antony, and the Egypt and Rome of the period between 69 and 30 BCE. Customs, clothing, battles, food, as well as relationships and politics, are covered and make this an interesting book. Cindy __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
