I struggled so much reading in March! After a few lines I always felt asleep. I also worked on two of the three books I read, so it took me quite some time to finish those books.
- Lost Empires: Ancient Aztec and Maya: The Extraordinary History of 3000 Years of Mesoamerican Civilization with Over 270 Photographs and Illustrations by Charles Phillips
- The Complete Illustrated History of the Inca Empire: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of the Incas and Other Ancient Peoples of South America, with More Than 1000 Photographs by David M. Jones
- The Dark Side of Camelot by Seymour M. Hersh
But it was so difficult to read. So. Difficult. Not necessarily by the substance, it was more the writing. There was so much information, but also footnotes (sometimes taking more than half the page), and repetitions. One thing bugging me all around was the lack of checkable sources. Interviews unavailable, unpublished books, anonymous sources. This added to the lack of structure and heavy writing made the reading frustrating and annoying.
