Library books...

1356 by Bernard Cornwell
Time and Chance by Bernard Cornwell
Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

In Wyoming it's hard to find a Barnes and Noble. But I live right next to a local bookstore and they can order anything I ask for :)

[quote=""Vanessa""]I've had a spend with a Waterstones' gift card which I received for Christmas:

Capital by John Lanchester
History of England Part I by Peter Ackroyd
The Fishing Fleet: Husband Hunting in the Raj by Anne de Courcy
The Housemaid's Daughter by Barbara Mutch
The Salem Witch Society by K N Shields
The Shadow Prince by Terence Morgan
Sanctuary Line by Jane Urquart
A few books by Georgette Heyer to add to my collection![/quote]

The Housemaid's Daughter looks interesting. Is it fiction?
