Brief Gaudy Hour has been on my PBS WL forever. I would take any version available. Right now I'm reading the Auto Bio of Henry VIII by Margaret George.

I've finished "Jack Knife: A Novel of Jack The Ripper" by Virginia Baker, a very interesting time travel book into Victorian London during the Ripper murders.

Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier. Kind of spooky so far.

I have just started "The Other Hand" by Chris Cleave. Not HF fiction, but it looks intriguing.

I'm into Dagger Lane by Ann Victoria Roberts since I was in the mood for some contemp fict with a spooky twist. My throat is terribly sore and I've slept the afternoon away since noon, so being curled up in bed reading is a great way to get my mind off the beginnings of this crappy cold.

I just finished a non fiction bio book on Beatrix Potter by Linda Lear. I really enjoyed it. I posted about it on my blog and Ms Lear actually stopped by and commented, so that was cool. http://annewhitfield.blogspot.com/
