Re: What are you reading February 2017?

I am reading The Golden Lynx by C.P. Lesley. I can't think of another book I have read set in 1530's Russia, even though Ivan IV (the terrible) makes for a fascinating time. Okay, the 5th Lymond book was partly there, so that's 1. Anyone know of others? There's a chapter in Edward Rutherford's Russ...

Re: Victoria (US broadcast January 2017)

I wasn't able to stomach the first episode, so I haven't been watching. I much preferred Young Victoria.

Re: Boardwalk Empire (HBO) story and History/any thoughts?

The original book is a work of non-fiction about the RL Nucky Johnson. The Boardwalk Empire series kept a lot of the real Nucky's details such as his penchant for wearing a carnation in his buttonhole and his first marriage, but changed a lot of the rest. Nucky Thompson on the show is more of a move...

I don't think I've seen that particular cover. It is getting difficult to remember though!

I loved those scenes, too. Claire's red gown bothered me, though. Not because of the color, but because the neckline was so vulgar.

Re: Happy new year! What are you reading in January 2016?

Justinian's Flea , about the 542 bubonic plague pandemic. How is that Laura? I bought that at the Getty Museum shop last year & it's sitting on my nightstand.

Re: What are you reading December 2015?

Since this is my time of year to snuggle up with my cats and a good book, I've been reading a lot. I'm on a non-fiction kick this season, though a few fiction titles crept in. So far: The Conqueror's Wife by Stephanie Thornton A Thousand Nights Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond Horses, the Whe...
