Still Princess Garnet

Post by princess garnet » Tue August 26th, 2008, 8:49 pm

Hi to all who were on the old HF site! Good to see you again. :)
I've been reading historical fiction since I was grade school. Eleanor Hibbert and Lucy Montgomery are and still remain my fave authors.
Since I enjoyed learning history in school, it was my undergrad major. While in college, I went to France for the 1st time for a summer study aboard program and loved it. Hope to go back someday! After college, I went on to study library science in grad school. Now I'm a public librarian. Great combination!
I still enjoy reading historical fiction. Look forward to posting here!

Good to see you! I would love to visit France and to bravely drive around for a couple weeks in a rented car. I bought a roadmap of the country at Barnes & Noble just to imagine the chance to do it. Maybe someday ....

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Welcome Princess!

Reading is certainly addictive - lucky for us we have our own place here in cyberspace!

Hi PG! Since you're a librarian I'm hoping we can count on you for lots of recs ;) I loved France, too!
