Mansfield Park by Jane Austen against my earlier saying that I would not read her works due to loving the films and worrying I might lose the image I myself have imagined the books to truely be.

I saw a book in the window of a second-hand bookshop so I had to ask for it. It's called The Medieval Art of Love. The woman kept giggling as she wrapped it and took my money. :rolleyes:

It is actually about paintings and drawings in case you're wondering.
By Loyalty Bound - the story of the mistress of Richard III.

I have heard such good things about that book! I own it but haven't read it yet!

In the interests of adding yet more books to that same category, today I bought The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The House of Special Purpose by John Boyne and two romance anthologies, It Happened One Night and Love at First Bite.

Today I received Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches' Guide to Romance Novels by Sarah Wendell and Candy Tan.

I am looking forward to a really good laugh as I read this book!
