[quote=""robinbird79""] My time period and area of choice is Britian up through Elizabeth I's reign. After that, my interest goes away for some reason. I really started in historical fiction to read about the Tudors but I'm starting to move back in time to the War of the Roses and beyond. [/quote]I'm with ya on your timeline! You may want to branch out to France and Italy in the same period. Some fascinating monarchs and the women behind or related to them are well worth discovering as so many individuals influenced the times through spiritual enlightenment, architecture and the arts, for starters. Like Francois I of France ....

As one of the other reviewers said, this site is heavy on the pocket book! It's a constant source of books for my TBR pile. Welcome Robin, and enjoy!

Welcome Robin, your time period of interest corresponds to that of lots of people here, so you'll have a blast. I'm the same with prehistory - as soon as I get past the Saxon period I lose interest, like someone turns a light off. It amuses my husband - get to the same part of the museum and go, OK, finished now, where's the cafe? :)
