Funnily enough it was a historical fiction YA book about William the Conqueror.

That whole set of retweet comments is utterly delightful. Thanks for sharing, Rowan!

I love old books (kind of goes with loving HF, doesn't it?), and would not be surprised if I have a few on my shelves that had lingered similarly long times in various bookshops.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
