Outlander Trading Cards

I went to my first comic-con last weekend and Diana Gabaldon and three individuals from the series were there doing a panel discussion. Also there was a fan club called The Southern Sassenachs. Among the goodies given out by them were, I just learned, trading cards. Anyone into collecting them? I'd ...

Bookstore Sells Book on Shelf After 27 years

Funnily enough it was a historical fiction YA book about William the Conqueror.

Re: Thumbs down to Goodreads changes - giveaways, fees

I enter giveaways often, but have only won twice and received a book once. I keep entering even though I know I won't win. I think it's pretty ridiculous for them to charge fees to do a listing, unless it's just a few cents. If that happens, I can see a lot of authors moving away from using Goodread...

Re: The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

10 years after the last post about this amazing book and I'm just here to confess that I just now read it because I thought it was something entirely different. I happened to see the trailer for the film and my first reaction was, "Oh." I immediately went out and bought it and devoured it soon after.

The Mystery of Julia Episcopa by John Rigoli

This is my Goodreads review of this book. I purchased this book because it was tagged to be similar to The DaVinci Code . Unfortunately it wasn't anything like Dan Brown's book. The premise is a good one, despite it no longer being an issue in the Church today, but I feel it could've done so much be...

King Philip IV of France

I'm looking for historical fiction about King Philip IV of France. I've just finished reading an article about the Knights Templar in the October issue of BBC History Magazine and it occurred to me that I should read something about him to see the downfall of the Templars from his perspective. Any s...
