About meI am a 28 year old "professional" living in Boston, MA...

About my libraryI have always loved to read...when I misbehaved as a kid my parents would send me to bed NO READING as punishment...kind of funny when you think of what you have to do to make most kids read. The healthy love of reading + a smidge of perfectionism makes this the perfect place to keep track of my literary endeavors!

For some reason your comment is not showing up on my profile page. Luckily I got it in an email. Thanks for writing me about LVF. I finally did figure out that I had requested Monique and the Mango Rains, although I don't actually remember when, but that book DID look familiar. The Marketing Director, Kate, actually stuck the note inside "Monique...", so I didn't find it until later when a friend of mine was rummaging through it.
You're welcome! Erin
Hi Katie, here ya go!
"And I promise you that in however many years we have left, whatever we do, we will not lose each other again." And that was sufficient for the moment.
Hi Kate, I just received your request and I will send you the last line of The Canterbury Papers when I get home tonight. Take care!
Hi Kate,

I'm 170 pages in now and the book is kind of running hot and cold for me. One minute I won't be able to put the book down and then the next I have no idea what's going on. I find the poems and foreign language parts really annoying and they totally pull me out of the story. I bought the companion book so I could understand what was going on but I've stopped using it since for me it doesn't make the story anymore enjoyable. I don't dislike it enough to stop so I'll finish it but I'm not sure if I would pick up anymore books in the series. For me it doesn't come anywhere close to the Outlander novels.

Hi, Kate! Thanks for your message - I am sorry you were disappointed with the book. I was disappointed with the depiction of Scarlett too, but overall, I liked the book (as in "it wasn't a waste of my time but it's not the best book I've read either"). =)Scarlett came off so bi&*^y to me - she was much more strong and ambitious in GWTW.

Keep in touch!

Hi, Kate: I saw your post on the "What Are You Reading Now" thread about reading "Rhett Butler's People" soon. I think I am the lone reviewer on LT who reviewed this book. I hope you enjoy it - please let me know what you think!

Take care!
Jill =)
Thanks for letting me know! I've been wondering if I should read The Innocent for a while now, and I'm glad to know it doesn't really seem good enough to buy. I might look in the library though.

As for Richard III, I started with The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman, but I'm now thinking that Daughter of Time is really a good introduction to the whole controversy. I absolutely loved A Rose for the Crown though, and the Richard that Anne Easter Smith portrays. The main character of that book is totally fictional though, so it really depends on what you'd prefer. Sunne in Splendour is very history-based, but also the best of Penman's novels; Daughter of Time is a good, short, well-written introduction to the whole thing; and A Rose for the Crown is just really excellent historical fiction with an emphasis on the fiction (the facts are all correct to my knowledge though). If you read any of these, let me know what you think!
