Garment of Shadows – Laurie R King

Pirate King, Laurie R. King (12th Oct 2011)

A new Mary Russell book – don’t expect me to do anything until it’s

no longer new! I had to borrow it from the library, because there doesn’t appear to be an e-book version, and I have no bookshelf space left (or money for hardbacks). (Sherlock Holmes, Mary Russell, silent movies, films, cinema, stories I reread)


The Gentleman’s Daughter, Amanda Vickery. (7th Oct 2011)

Social history is a kind of quiet addiction. I love reading about real lives in all sorts of different times and places, but I particularly enjoy letters, especially the letters and journals written by ordinary people in interesting times. (nonfiction, social history, georgian period, english history)
