SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Back from the Library

An Impartial Witness - Charles Todd The Hundred Years War, Volume 1: Trial by Battle - Jonathan Sumption

Well, I am back from the library, with booty - a Bess Crawford novel, An Impartial Witness, and a book several of us are planning on reading, Trial by Battle.


The latter looks lovely, but I have a feeling I'm coming down with something (my ears are my early warning system), so I may well cuddle up with the Charles Todd.  'Cause I doubt I'll have the mental fortitude for the Hundred Years' War if I have a head cold!


(Which reminds me, I should add a disclaimer to my rating of Twilight: "Read with nasty head cold, thus chosen by 12-year-old me.  She was moderately amused.")
