boswellbaxter - that was hilarious! I am sorry to say this, but I have seen some women that remind me of that video. ;)

The day before my eye surgery, Wednesda, I picked up a copy of Pope Joan at a used book store. I thought this was a good find. As well, I received my copy of Decision Most Deadly that evening in the mail. So this definitely was a great day!

I have spent entirely too much money today. I found a lovely book on Chinese imperial clothing (I am a costuming nut) over at Daedalusbooks.com at a thoroughly shameless price. Not to mention a stack o'stuff (sex in Elizabethan England, anyone?) and a few more at Book Depository.

Oh, and EC's The Running Vixen is available for preorder, but alas, no cover art as yet. Just 200 days to go...

Here's the link for the book. The title is, natch, Sex in Elizabethan England by Alan Hayes.

Edit: and for those of you out there who enjoyed the series, Aristocrats, they also have the illustrated companion volume for under 2.00 -- a real steal.

It's got 3 stars at Amazon, so I will wait to hear what you say before I decide to buy or not.

:) :) :)

A good sickness I think, although I'm glad the library has cured me of it for the most part. Although those holds can create the same kind of problem.....

I've ordered "Silence and Shadows" by James Long, also from Amazon but it's coming from the US as copies in the UK seem to be pretty rare, expensive, or part of one of those omnibus editions which are heavily abridged.
