just finished Come the Morning and now I have no idea what to read, it's not like I'm lacking books but I just don't know which to pick.

I loved that book! I read it years and years ago and still think about it. I bought another copy a while ago for a reread soon!

I've finished "Salvation In Death" by J.D Robb. It was good, though not among my favourites of her "In Death" books.

The History International Channel did a program on Akhenaten, Nefertiti,Seti, it was very interesting to say the least. Did anyone else watches this, I liked it cause I had just finished Morans books on it all.

Heir Apparent by Sheri Vangen-Ratcliffe. A bit of a time slip thing with a trip to the past in Henry VIII's court. ROFL, this thing is so bad that I have to finish it, like watching a train wreck, I can't take my eyes off of it. And the typos!! Never ever in my life have I been tempted to get a red pen out and mark up a book. :D :D :D

Seriously though, there's a good chance that this book will topple Follett from the #1 spot on The List. :p :) :o

I've had Heir Apparent on the wishlist for ages! It might just stay there languishing now I've read your thoughts!
