I suppose I manage to keep up onwho has what book out and when, as I wasn't even aware a new book was due out from Phillipa Gregory until I saw it amongst the stack of new books at 'work. My boss, though, took first dibs, as I guess its the boss' perogative to do so.

I read that article today and I was like ...um...not sure I want to read it! Hopefully it is not as over the top as that article makes it out to be!

I was at Borders when they opened this morning (how sad is that?!) and I picked this up. I'm only on page 11 or so, but I am already diggin' it! Can't wait til work is over and I can go home, ignore everyone and read my heart out!

I have a B&N giftcard and I think I might use it to get this one, it sounds really good and I enjoy her books.

Alianore from blogdom was kind enough to send me this link to a digested read of Gregory's latest. (May contain spoilers of a fashion.)

Very good ! :p
My advice, read that and stay away from the boring "real" TOQ.

Good fun - thanks!
This probably isn't one for my TBR at the moment. It's garnering some fairly underwhelming reviews from Amazon UK thus far.
