Amphoras were for storing wine - the narrow base was used as an additional handle while pouring and is too narrow for the amphora to stand up unassisted. They were either placed in stands or sealed and stored on their sides.

Folks drank lots of wine so there's lots of amphoras. Also often stamps so you can date them and track trade routes.

#gratefulreads #bookandbeverage I admit it‘s cheating, since it‘s only water in my favorite wine glass. It‘s too early in the day to imbibe, but I‘m going to have to have a glass of wine while reading this! 😄

OriginalCyn620 Nice pic! 😊 7d

#GratefulReads This was a really interesting #nonfiction book about Rudy Kurniawan and his forgery of rare and vintage wines.

#bookmail is the best mail, especially when it‘s unexpected! Thank you, thank you @Crazeedi for this. It‘s on my TBR, and I‘m really looking forward to reading it. And I was just thinking yesterday that I owe you a long letter 😊

Crazeedi I've been thinking of you lately, and I remembered you wanted to read. I definitely recommend his trilogy staring with this one if you havent read. I donated to library so many books, including these before I had Litsy 1w

A charming book celebrating felines and wine. Gorgeous pictures of vineyard cats. Makes me want to visit the vineyards so I can meet the cats in person. Love the personal bios included for the cats also, which include things like favorite foods, toys, obsessions, etc.

I...am still mad at this book. It was promoted like crazy so I picked it up (I should‘ve known better). No one in this book acts like any person with a functioning brain would. The main character is in a constant state of cluelessness leading to her being shocked by the most obvious and benign things. 0/10

Two and a half stars. Ground breaking read? It is not. It's a decent read about a twenty-something in the New York restaurant world--- a lot of fucked up relationships with co-workers and a lot of drugs. I've read better books, and I've read worse. This one's pretty middle-of- the-road.

I need a light read after finishing The Labyrinth of Spirits, and this seems like it will fit the bill.
Book #109 for 2019!
