Jeff MacKinnon reshared this.


I guess with the influx of new users to the Fediverse, we're doing introductions now, so here's mine:

Jonathan Lamothe reshared this.


So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.


As I've been reading #, I find myself with a question: why don't modern # have a "cast of characters" section at the beginning? It makes the book so much easier to follow. Perhaps modern plot lines are deemed simple enough that this isn't considered necessary?
The practice of publishers printing a Cast of Characters in books ended back in the 19th Century sometime. I actually have a couple Dickens books from that era with it, but seeing that in modern books is definitely rare these days. I have no idea why the practice went out of style, though.

Oddly enough, a Search online reveals no answers, either. πŸ™


Just finished reading The Iliad. Now it's time to decide: do I continue on to The Odyssey, or do I take a break and read The Apollo Murders instead? I can't decide. # # # #
I think I'm going to go forward with The Iliad for now. I can always switch later if I so choose. (Shocking, I know.)
I found the styles a little different (same translator) but the Odyssey isn't the Iliad II and so a break would be OK, I reckon.
