Just can't get enough!
In the last week I've read all three of these books (Good books), watched The Other Boleyn Girl (Craptastic movie), and revisited the first of the two Elizabeth movies (The better of the two starring Cate Blanchet).
If you need to know anything about Tudor history starting with the time of Henry VIII lemme know, I appear to be obsessed right now. (Which is strange, because I'm really not at all a history fan. I don't believe in living in the past. Who has the time?)
I found these books in a thrift store. This was a thrift store in a retirement community so these were the large print versions of the books. (ie it is the same book just HUGE font!) I didn't realize this until I got in the car and started to flip through the first one.
Then something magical happened! Due to the massive font I was able to read in the back seat of the moving car without getting the least bit car sick!!! This is unheard of for me! Since all three of the books were the large print versions I was able to read them all in the last week while riding around the city. I can't tell you how long it has been since I've had the time to just enjoy reading a book, much less three books in one week! It seems when I'm at home there is always some movie I've been meaning to watch (Thanks, Netflix) or there is some project I need to work on. The only time I had was in the car, but I would get car sick.
I don't know if all books come in this large print option, but I will most certainly be looking for it all of the time now!
