‘Books I’m Reading’ with Martha Stewart: The Next Book!

Martha is keeping me on my toes. We’re already on to the next book for her Books I’m Reading book club! This month’s book is Cleoptra: A Life, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff.

Confession: I’m a fiction person all the way. Two non-fiction books in a row is, well, not what I would choose. BUT…all this learning and stuff is good for me, right? 😉 And, after doing a little research on the book and starting it this past weekend, I’m actually pretty excited about Cleoptra: A Life. I know very little about Cleopatra and what little I do know is ill-informed, I’m sure. Can’t wait to read an accurate history of her life and, I’ll be honest, get all the dirty details on the murders, affairs and intrigue! ;)Check back in a month or so for my “book report”. Should be a good one!


  1. Oh! OH! This book is so on my wish list for Christmas. I listened to a whole review on NPR for an hour and I WANT the book.

    sounds so fascinating….

  2. 2

    Oooh I’ve heard such good things about this one! Definitely adding it to my reading list 🙂

  3. Oh, I thought this looked fascinating. I’ll have to try this one too.

  4. I am with you one hundred percent. Martha needs to get on the fiction bandwagon, bless her heart. Cleopatra looks cool, though.
