I'm about 260 pages into Here Be Dragons now and gosh, what a marvelous book to read, what a great story ! You were all so right to recommend it !

Yesterday afternoon I was reading the bit where Joanna had burnt Llewellyns bed and then the love in their relationship really develops. The tears were rolling down my cheeks !! I rarely have that with a book !

And to add the last one for this year to my list : Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters.

I really loved this book and will certainly read more of the Amelia Peabody stories !!
