Probably a good idea. Did I mention that Chase identifies Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond, as being Margaret Beaufort's master of horse?

Oye! Oh I forgot to mention in my short review of the recent "The Tudors" book, that the author says that Jane Grey left the Tower to go home after she was deposed! She only left the Tower to go to her trial! Colour me unimpressed with that bit of his writing.

Not really "shopping," but I just found out I won a copy of Lionheart (aka the Holy Grail) on Library Thing Early Reviewers!!!!!!!

PS--25 copies were available, 1368 people requested. The algorithm gods were smiling on me!

PPS--you may not know this, but I have a HUGE historical crush on Richard!

Congrats and can I say I hate you (in a totally "I'm super jealous you won a copy of a book I'm dying to read and can't wait until October" kind of way?)

I'd love to see a decent Berengaria. She seems to be one of those characters who novelists always turn into a colorless wimp.
