It's Pay Day, hurrah! :D And that means book purchasing, so I've just ordered 'From Splendour to Revolution' about the Romanov women, by Julia P Gelardi, 'And the Band Played On: The Titanic violinist and the glove maker - a true story of love, loss and betrayal' by Christopher Ward and 'Dead Reckoning - a Sookie Stackhouse novel' by Charlaine Harris, all off Amazon.

I have that one! Loved the BBC radio 4 series she did - lots of juicy stories, period music and songs.

Ohh one of my favorites of hers that is not part of a triology. Enjoy!

I thoroughly enjoyed Within the Fetterlock! Please let me know what you think of The Godwins as I have had this on my TBB (To Be Bought) pile for quite awhile.

I treated myself to a browsing trip to B&N today and of course came home with C.W Gortner's Confessions of Catherine de Medici which I plan to devour tonight :D

I read the first in the Blood Brothers trilogy and wasn't that impressed by it, should get round to reading the others I suppose! :rolleyes: ;)
