Hello from Wiltshire

Post by aceuggy » Tue October 5th, 2010, 5:50 pm

Just stumbled upon your forum today and it's rather taken my breath away! I had no idea there were so many books and authors that I not only haven't read, but didn't know existed. This place is clearly a wealth of information and I look forward to dipping in often. My only real experience of HF is Bernard Cornwell and his Sharpe and Alfred the Great books. I obviously have a great deal of catching up to do.

Hi there, yes this place is awesome and can really do damage to your reading plans (in a good way). HFO and Goodreads are two of my favorite places to be. Forget FB.
