A new kind of Plutarch book

Announcements/RE: A new kind of Plutarch book
Just had to update- after we finished Eumenes, we moved on to Julius Caesar since DD is doing that in Shakespeare this term. We're about halfway through his life (doing it bc it's FUN and reading it without any guide). Previously,  I procrastinated Plutarch for 2 years. Now, I'm not sure why. It doesn't seem difficult at all after reading it through the lens of the book.

Some of the most helpful things were not worrying about getting bogged down in every name and detail, discerning which things are helpful to have background on versus not necessary, and viewing reading Plutarch as attending a dinner party with lots of people.

If there's something I'm not understanding, able to categorize in my mind, or a person I'm not sure of, it doesn't bug me as it did before. I am able to just move on and think, "No big deal. I wouldn't necessarily know everyone or hear the entire thread of every conversation at a dinner party, so it's okay."

I know that these things have been said on the forum and in other ways, but the guidance and leading in the book really was helpful for me for my thinking. The humor with which it was presented as an introduction to a subject that seemed daunting was helpful also. DD and I enjoyed reading the set up to beginning the life of Eumenes. So...thanks again!
