Three Favorite Eras to Read About? This week's Book List is kind of an easy one for me ...
- Victorian England (ie. David Copperfield, The Meaning of Night)
- The Golden Age of Egyptian Archaeology (ie. the Amelia Peabody series, The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb (Poirot)
- Post-Partition India (ie. Midnight's Children, A Suitable Boy)
Although now that I've looked through my books, there are so many more eras that I read about regularly -- post-Great War England, the Spanish Inquisition, modern India and Pakistan, Victorian New England, Regency England, pre-Revolution France. And then there's everything else -- including many books that are set in imaginary places and universes so that they have no "era" to speak of.
What eras do you find yourself reading about the most? What are your favorite books set in my favorite eras that I may not have read yet?
