Oh, Chanukah presents are rolling in and I have five book gift cards! Today David and I will go to the huge Borders in Phoenix with my list. Oh and I also have a 40% coupon. Who needs jewels when I can have books!

I'd love to know how this one turns out. This has always been a subject of interest to me.

Picked up Peter Akroyd's Thames. I read his London awhile back, this looks like its worth the read (and hopefully the price! Yikes....)

Most of my presents this year will be books. Yesterday I purchased several copies of The Last Lecture (nf) for friends who I thought would enjoy it, plus Danielle Steel's A Good Woman, The Billionaire's Vinegar, a book on lizards, two cookbooks, a Stephanie Plum book, two Steve Berry novels, something by Carol Higgins Clark, three mysteries I've never heard of (each by debut authors), and finally Candace Bushnell's latest book.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I was racking my brains to recall a certain Roman-era HF I read long ago -- and then I was so thrilled when the depths of the depleted grey matter spit out the title and the author I looked it up and bought it used from ABE books.
The Unconquered, by Naomi Mitchison. Anybody else read it?

I was lucky and received The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry a couple of days ago.

I got three gift cards for B&N for $50 each for Christmas and they are having a sale today so we'll see what I might find that I can't live without.
