More on JQA's Shipboard Reading
Over at the Beehive I've added a post to track JQA's September reading list as he continues on his way to Russia (follow on Twitter here). I also went through and expanded the August list, adding comments JQA made in his long diary entries about his reading. My favorite might be that from 11 August: "I employed much of [the day] in reading Mrs. Grant's letters, which I find more interesting than Plutarch. I return to them of choice, but Plutarch is a task, and a heavy one. I never could read him through. I find it especially hard to read him after a sleepless night; after two harder still."
