Update!

Och, thanks to someone illegally tapping my phone/internet lines I have been without phone/internet for over a month. During the month of April, my house has been a revolving door for the T.W. techs who were trying to discover the problem with my lines.

Sadly, I have fallen behind in my posting, which I am hoping to remedy in the coming weeks. Thankfully, I did manage to tame my wild TBR pile as well as reading a few from my own personal library. When I wasn’t stuck at home waiting for the T.W. techs to finish I was able to go check out a few of my favorite bookshops and stock up on a few more Tudor nonfiction novels.

Currently Reading: The Divorce of Henry VIII by Catherine Fletcher

Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel- re-reading this so I can start Bring Up the Bodies!
