BookCentric: Hi! I selected you as my Santee because we share an interest in early English history... and then found that you already have a lot of my favorites! I wound up picking the biography of Francis Walsingham because I enjoyed it and it was one of the few Tudor-era books I have but you don't! Memoirs of a Medieval Woman I think you'll love. Sir Gawain is a wonderful read and one of the first works of English literature - I haven't read this particular translation, but it seems to be well-regarded so I picked it instead of the older translation I read. I hope you will let me know what you think! (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 16:56:04 -0500)

lorannen: Unfortunately, prices shifted, and not in our favor. I had to swap editions of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in order to fit all three of Santa's picks.

Done. (Fri, 14 Dec 2018 03:37:33 -0500)
