Hello everyone
May I join in this interesting group?

Hi Bridget, I thought you had asked somewhere else and I replied. Yes of course you are welcome to join.

The next review date and suggestions for next time is 5 January 2015. Meanwhile if you read back you can see the current choice. :-)

My Book

I have had this book for a long time and have read it about 5 times. It is not easy to read but was an enjoyable novel about Tudors England.

I had not realised just how the brutality the era was and C J Samson is a master of Tuder Life. He is description is is a perfect mixture of Novelistix and History detail.

A political greed (nothing has changed ) continues even in our time.

I hope that someone will enjoy this........in fact I have decided that I will read this for what my husband will say, not again and I will say 'of course '?

C J Sansom was educated in Birmingham Uni and took a BA and then a PhD in History lived in Sussex.

Bridget, I don't understand why you are adding to this old thread. Does this mean you are not going to give us any suggestions on the current Greaders suggestions for Jan- Feb 2015 thread?

In the Greaders group we make two suggestions every six weeks, we then vote for the books that we want to read (2 books but not the ones we have suggested). We then read at least the first chosen book and possible the second as well. At the same time on the review thread we review the chosen books from the previous period.

If you are just going to read and review books that you already have but are not chosen to read by the Greaders group then you would be better off reading and reviewing them on the Kindle books and other books I have read thread (by Mersey).

Can you let me know what exactly it is that you want to do. Have you got an e reader? If so, most of the books we choose are available on the kindle. :-) :-)
