Spring reading choices, medieval moon-watching, and a very bad Easter indeed for Edward III
Happy Easter indeed
Perhaps you missed it but evangelicals over here are now comparing our Former President to Jesus during this Easter season for the obvious similarities between the two. Jesus had Mary Magdalen, the Don has Stormy Daniels, etc etc. Both were/are persecuted mightily by unfair governments as are their supporters. Orange Jesus has even now appeared before a modern day Pontius Pilate to further the comparison and trials are on the way, probably with a Crown of Thorns at the ready.
For me, they are missing the better comparison, The Chocolate Easter Bunny. Of course it would have to be White Chocolate with great hair, but I'd get one!
Pray for us, its gonna get crazy
Not a newly released book but I'm currently enjoying The White Ship by Charles Spencer. This story or the wider reign of Henry I would make a great TV drama in its own right.
I recently started reading three books that had been on my desk for some time and that I'm really enjoying:
-La sorcière: The Witch of the Middle Ages, by Jules Michelet.
- Run to the Hills: Iron Maiden, the Authorized Biography, by Mick Wall.
- Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt,by Chris Naunton.
I know the three are completely different topics, but I just follow my interests when I can.
I broke up with chocolate and chocolate is not happy. I get the why don't you love me anymore and is fruit really better than me. The answer is No, but fruit is better for me. I hope Cadburys understand....
Happy Easter everyone! I shall be spending the weekend eating chocolate and reading 😊
I just finished a really fun book, actually. It’s about the Hundred Years War. Maybe you’ve heard of it?
Recently saw Tombstone- the movie. And as often happens, I am compelled to research further- Reading The Last Gunfight by Jeff Guinin. A great history book about the American West. Alternating that with Agatha Christie for a little mental relaxation. Next up is a book about Faberge and the Russian royals.
Will this book be signed?
I'm set to finish Hereward the Wake this weekend. Next up is The English Governess at the Siamese Court.
Have a great weekend!!!
Happy Easter to you all!
I'm hoping to finish Thomas Penn's The Brothers York and then start in Ian Kershaw's Hitler, probably alternating with King Richard: Nixon and Watergate by Michael Dobbs.
I am currently reading Wolf Hall, but I just added Solomon’s Crown to my Amazon order. Thanks for the rec!
i feel your elation and your followup let down That means you worked hard and are happy but will await long term joy till sales abound!
(just as in school days when you gave your all but awaited the confirmatory grades!!
Hope your success is soon applauded
Happy Easter as well as Happy 63rd birthday to my son and also Happy 63 rd wedding anniversary to friend Shirley Mcgreal OBE for her wonderful work with IPPL saving many many primates for many many years!!
This Easter I will mostly be gorging on Chocolate.
Plus I'll also be trying to cull the TBR pile.

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin
The King is Dead by Suzannah Lipscombe
Happy Easter everyone! I am currently reading George III by Andrew Roberts and it’s fantastic so far, I am learning a lot. Then I will move onto Queen Victoria’s Gene: Haemophilia and the Royal Family by D.M. Potts.
Happy Easter! Currently reading Henry VIII and the Men Who Made Him by Tracy Borman. Definitely does not pass the Bechdel Test!
Happy Easter! Now I have another book to add to my reading list, as Super-Infinite sounds interesting! However I starting Anatomy A Love Story by Dana Schwartz (which I’m sure you have already read) today and then The Ruin of All Witches by Malcolm Gaskell.
