Books from the Backlog, hosted by Carole's Random Life in Books, is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your shelf unread.
I am featuring books in the order that they were added to my Goodreads To-Read shelf, so sometimes there will be a couple weeks in a row of books on the same topic.
Neglected Book of the Week
Why did I add Lost to the West to my TBR?
Because the Byzantine Empire is just as important to our history as anywhere else and so many people do not realize the flow of people, ideas, and materials back and forth are part of what makes the world as we know it today. Plus, Byzantine is a fun word to say.
Have you read this book, or is it somewhere on your TBR? If you've read it, would you recommend it to others?
