2.1.13 #Nook #FreeFriday

“A massive overview of every myth under the sun. Davis shatters commonly held myths about myths.”
New York Daily News

That’s why every serious reader will love today’s Free Fridays selection: Don't Know Much About Mythology by Kenneth C. Davis. This bestselling author has written seven books in his popular Don’t Know Much About…series, covering everything from the Bible to the American Civil War. In this edition, Davis offers an engaging, layman-friendly lesson on ancient mythology—exploring cultures from around the world. While you probably have a vague idea of where everyday terms and concepts like “Pandora’s Box,” “Achilles’ Heel,” and “Wheel of Fortune,” come from, after reading DKMAM you’ll feel quite confident going into your next game of Trivial Pursuit on family game night.

Once you’ve binged on your mythology lessons, you can move on to Davis’s other equally enlightening Don’t Know Much About…books available for NOOK.
