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 Justinian's Flea to my TBR?
Because long before the Black Death came around (seven centuries, give or take a few years), there was another plague that devastated the known world and changed the course of history. Why wouldn't you want to read about that?
Have you read this book, or is it somewhere on your TBR? If you've read it, would you recommend it to others?
