Not sure how a thread entitled What are you reading becomes a discussion on the Beatles.

Perhaps we all might find some connection with the following...

Quote:
But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round.

It's very easy to make virtually any thread into a thread about the Beatles. :fyi:

Not sure how a reading thread turns into a Beatles thread? Go back and read the posts and you'll figure out this difficult mystery! :P

And yes, any thread can turn into a Fab 4 gab fest! Perhaps we can turn the next topic into a Led Zeppelin discussion! ::):

So, I'm reading Idylls of the King. I just started it (literally; I'm three stanzas into The Coming of Arthur), but I think I'll enjoy it. It's been a while since blank verse and I have met outside of the classroom. One thing is sure: this is definitely going to be more enjoyable than Le Morte d'Arthur; regardless of the antiquated words, I just didn't find the style appealing.

Have you read The Once and Future King? Worth a look if you like Arthuriana.

Just finished the Idylls. Wow, "The Passing of Arthur" was great! Especially that last stanza of Arthur's. Quite a few famous quotes, and a few that should be more famous. I also liked "The Holy Grail", "Lancelot and Elaine" and "Guinevere".

Now I'm about to start The Sultan's Shadow, about a nineteenth-century Sultan of Zanzibar and his daughter who eloped with a German and converted to Christianity. Should be good; Arab culture interests me.
