Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.
From Malory: Complete Works, edited by Vinaver:
"(')Looke that the gooddys be skyffted, that none playne of his parte.'"
And there we are. There were two other books of equal distance to me, but one didn't have 123 pages, and the other was Irish Names by Donnchadh O Corrain and Fidelma Maguire. I made a decision as to which to go with, and I think I made the good choice. In memes, you can never go wrong with Malory.
