You sure do read a lot of books! I wish I could read so fast.

Short reviews is my favorite part of your blog. Sometimes I find books to read, but even when I don't, it is fascinating to hear about books I haven't read.

I am curious about Birth of the Codex. It has always been my impression that scrolls simply cannot contain anywhere near the volume of bound books. Although maybe this only becomes an issue when the printing press is invented. Does the author talk about the volume issue in the book?
