Poll: November/December 2011 Book of the Month

Post by boswellbaxter » Tue September 13th, 2011, 4:24 pm

Voting closes September 18. Because a lot of members will likely be busy in December, we'll extend this read through the end of the year and pick up with the BOTM again in January.

I tried to read "Darling Strumpet" and couldn't get into it but I'm planning to read "Lady of the English" and it'll be my first Chadwick book when I do :)

Glad to see you back posting!!! I'm going to order Lady of the English for my Kindle. I'm sure you will love EC's books. I bought a bunch of them on a trip to London before they were readily available in the US.

Oh, so I've been negligent in my reading of EC's books, but maybe this will change all that and I'll want to read more, we'll see. So go easy on me :D

Susan: Thanks!

The winner is Lady of the English.

This is the last BOTM we're going to be doing, at least for a while. We're going to try something different in 2012. See the details here.
