Most of the discussions and reviews on UNRV deal with serious and/or scholarly topics. After posting the list of July book releases yesterday, I thought I'd post an alternative list of titles focusing on more humorous aspects of ancient and Roman history. These are not necessarily recent releases but a more general compilation (also, some of the titles may have already been reviewed). Enjoy and feel free to share further suggestions below!
