Barry's Book Corner
Today's recommendation from our resident bookworm, Barry Bitumen, is that well-known tome "Gibbon's The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire" by D.M. Low - which can be found on the staircase, in the corner just before you turn left to go up onto the landing.
Says Barry, "I particularly enjoyed the start of paragraph two on page 508, which reads 'Athanasius introduced into Rome the knowledge and practice of the monastic life...' Yes, that was a good bit, that."
Wise words indeed, and we look forward to the next exciting installment to come from the shelves of the the Book Corner library.
Here at WOP HQ, we were particularly impressed by the condition of the carpet, given that it hasn't been hoovered for months.
