It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? — 5 Comments

  1. I’m reading ‘Absolute Monarchs” by Norwich. A history of the Papal succession. Rather than church succession it reveals a history of constant conflict between Church and the Holy Roman Empire. Sort of timely since we hear so much current discussion of separation of church and state.

  2. I started reading “Football Against the Enemy”, a book published about soccer (our American word for it) in various countries around the world. It’s pretty interesting and is on a lot of sports fans’ “must read” lists. Just finished a chapter on USSR era soccer in East Berlin, and how the fans had to keep their allegiance to Western clubs secret! Lots of interesting cultural and societal tidbits on a variety of countries, even if the book is a little dated now.
