Making my way through The Age of Fable slowly, but at a decent pace. This book was purchased as a textbook requirement in a college class. We never used it (don't you hate that?) but I saw potential for personal reading. So long as I don't have to read it by a certain time I could enjoy this book.

The biggest drawback is due to prudish nature of Bulfinch - that can only be expected due to the time period it was written in though.

Nice~!"

Katie Bulfinch, you are a prude.
