The Last Days of Pompeii | Edward Bulwer Lytton

COMPLETED for #NFNov — “Doomsday Pompeii,” a documentary on National Geographic about the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and destruction of Pompeii in 79 AD. Even the cat was engrossed!

#TIL: after the city was covered in ash and rubble, it disappeared from view and was forgotten for 1,500 years until it was discovered again by accident. So far more than 1,100 bodies have been excavated.

Amiable @4thhouseontheleft @MallenNC I‘ve been fascinated with Pompeii since high school Latin class —it‘s a bucket list trip, for sure! Hoping to get there in the next few years. 2mo

#riotgrams day 3, naked hardcover, I'm not sure if this really counts because I don't think they ever had dust jackets, but it still let's me show them off. Appears to be originally pub. In 1834, my copies are from 1891.

ReviewsandReadathons Those are so pretty!! 2y
Shaunesay I was very excited when I found them, I loved the Mini-Series on TV when I was younger, then to find out it was based on a set of older books because there they were, and affordable was awesome! It was good book day! 2y
Linsy Pretty! 2y

Going literal for #stuckinthepast. I remember seeing my Aunt's slides from her trip to Pompeii and being fascinated by them. #fallintobooks @RealLifeReading

LauraBrook I was there, but only for an afternoon. It was amazing, and I want to go back! 2y
