Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Cleopatra: A Life - Stacy Schiff An interesting read, but I also was left feeling that the story had big chunks of it carved out. Too, the writing is rather dry and sterile at times. While I did like parts of it, there wasn't quite enough there to lure me back for a re-read or to have it land on my keeper shelves. Three and a half stars rounded up to four.
