What are you reading Wednesday

Posted February 15, 2017 by Nicky in General / 4 Comments

What have you recently finished reading?

Francis Pryor’s Britain AD, with which I had a lot of arguments. I don’t dispute his understanding of archaeology, but I’m not sure about his grasp of linguistics, genetics or literature, which unfortunately come into this somewhat and appear to counter some of his theories. But I have a whooole post on that coming in… uh, April. So I’ll stop now.

What are you currently reading?

I’m still reading Ellen Klages’ Wicked Wonders, rereading Tad Williams’ The Dragonbone Chair, and I’ve started on On the Origin of Species — Darwin, of course. It’s a little slow going, but as a biologist in the making, I feel like I really should read it — and he argued his case very, very well. I’ve also still got The Stars are Legion…

What are you planning to read next?

I’m trying not to plan what to read next! I need to get some of the books I’m already reading squared away. I’m going to focus on Wicked Wonders next, I think.

    • I found Britain BC a bit more convincing, because it agreed with accounts I’ve read elsewhere. But with Britain AD, it contradicted things I knew to be true, which kinda casts all of Pryor’s work into doubt. At the very least, he didn’t do his homework re: Arthuriana (a great crime for me, given I wrote my dissertation on Arthuriana…)!
