Hello all,

Have just downloaded The Boleyn Inheritance and Other
Boleyn Girl, when I'll get round to reading them i don't
know but just incase which one should I read first, do they

'The Story of Civilisation' by Will Durant (1885 - 1981).

32 volumes published from c1935 onwards.

Purchased by me in 1988 & am now on my 2nd reading of them. Well written by this well-known & respected American historian, with the inclusion of some unusual & unexpected phrases. The reader is advised to undertake one chapter at a time - such is the depth of the Author’s detailed information compacted therein.

What have I learned from my troubles? One thing stands out - man was just as cruel & kind in the BC era as in the current AD generations.

Thought I would give this thread a nudge

I am reading, at the moment, The Burning Wire, by Jeffery Deaver. This is one in the Lincoln Rhyme series, and they are always very enjoyable. Lincoln Rhyme is a C4 (quadraplegic), Criminologist, and his cases are always very complex, but interesting.

I still havn't got round to starting The Help, which I saw was still in the list of bestsellers. It was at No.5 in the Times Fiction Book List, on Saturday.
Maybe I'll pack it into my hospital bag, as I will have more time to read it in there. LOLOLO

Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton (Who wrote Sisters). An excellent thriller I have it in paperback but it is available for the Kindle.

Mersey Try Sisters by Rosamund Lupton, although it is not a free book. It is a good read, as is the next one she wrote, 'Afterwards'.
