When i read my first passage of this book, on the invention of books in the ancient world, i thought, "Oh, so that's what i'd be doing in ancient Greece." I never really thought of roving booksellers in ancient Greece? This book takes a somewhat ephemeral history of books, bookmakers, booksellers, and libraries in ancient Greece and Rome. A fascinating read for any book lover. [sweet pea]
