Jeff VanderMeer Blogs Penguin Great Ideas

Jeff VanderMeer on his Ecstatic Days blog is in the process of reviewing 60 Books in 60 Days by reading the entire collection of the Penguin Great Ideas series. He aims to read one a night, from mid-December to mid-February, and post a blog entry about it the next morning.

So far he has posted reviews of:

On the Shortness of Life; Life Is Long If You Know How to Use It
by Lucius Seneca (c. 4 BC - 65 AD)

by Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180)

Confessions of a Sinner
by St Augustine (AD 354-430)

Jeff's blog is always entertaining, but he has certainly reached new heights with this latest endeavour.

I am finding Jeff's reviews of this series to be fascinating and very interesting and look forward each morning to see which writer/book gets the VanderMeer treatment.
