This and that

Grumpy Old Bookman finds Robert Harris's Imperium boring. I guess if you need a Cicero fix, you can read Anthony Everitt's bio. It's a pity, I rather liked Harris's Pompeii.

The FT's Gideon Rachman poses a question few have dared ask. Does President Bush read too much?

A really bad sign from Iraq.

Bookslut tells of Ian McKellan providing the reading for a new audiobook version of Odyssey.
