[quote=""Nefret""]Thanks for the chronology. It's nice to have one I don't need to look up. Anyway... whom is the L.M Ironside book about? I assume it's historical fiction.

Considering that Lady Mary Grey was a hunchbacked dwarf and apparently short on looks, I have to wonder about the accuracy of the text therein.

[quote=""Madeleine""]I like these! Although the second one looks like it's a set, it doesn't seem to go with the building and looks a bit like she's just been slid into place with the roses and the frame! Lovely colours though.[/quote]

The second one is the original illuminated image.

[quote=""Misfit""]Books are flying today, and I don't know why I don't start EC's latest. It's like a filet and lobster and some very rare wine I'm stashing away for a special day or something.[/quote]

I've done that before, saved a book for a special rainy day.

[quote=""Nefret""]Is that the second in that series? If I already read it, I liked it.[/quote]

Yes, it's the second in the Young Gordianus series, set 2 years after The Seven Wonders. I only just finished the first chapter, so I can't say much yet.

Just finished Edward Rutherford's Paris. Stayed up till three this morning reading. I enjoyed the unconventional time jumps once I realized how he was weaving the story in and out.
