I have Prime in the US and I like it. I use the lending library and occasionally, I watch movies. I like being able to order what I need when I need it and not having to worry whether it qualifies for free shipping.

I enjoyed the E Peters series, especially the first few books. She has a great sense of humor.

I quit the series after reading the 4th book twice to figure out what I missed while everyone around me was raving about it. lol

Life's too short. I liked Sworn Sword by James Aitchenson, but I haven't gotten to the second book yet. Maybe there's a third??

Just change the darn policy...

[quote=""Susan""] The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen I've been pretty much Tudored out and do not read many Tudor novels anymore, but this one is a bit different.
