I told you about Roberto Calas's The Scourge a few posts back. I'm still waiting for Nov 27th and the release of the next episode.
Episode 1: Released on November 13, 2012. 37 pages. Sir Edward leads two knights through zombie-plagued England in search of his wife, despite the Church expressly forbidding the mission.
I also started The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens -
Samuel Pickwick is the founder and perpetual president of the Pickwick Club. He and his fellow Pickwickians travel to the far-flung corners of London in search of adventure – luckily for the gentlemen, amusement and hilarity are never in short supply. Along their way, they encounter plenty of characters – from villains who land them in deep trouble to one woman who sues Pickwick to force him into marriage, providing the Pickwickians with plenty of tales to entertain.
I stumbled on The Great Book Collectors by Charles and Mary Elton -

I accidentally downloaded this book. Amazon doesn't give a description of this book and the description on Goodreads left a lot to be desired so I decided to just read a bit and see for myself what it was about. So far, and I'm not sure if I'm still just in an introduction of sorts, it seems to be about famous bibliophiles throughout the ages. It's actually been interesting to read how men coveted books so much that wars could have been fought over them, libraries were destroyed because of war and men and families were sometimes in peril because of owning books. I'm not saying I will ever finish this and if I do it won't be anytime soon. Just something to read here and there. It has some amazing information that has also been quite interesting.
Today I began reading Stolen Crown: The Secret Marriage that Forever Changed the Fate of England by Susan Higginbotham.
Trapped in the Wars of the Roses, one woman finds herself sister to the queen...and traitor to the crown
Katherine Woodville's sister never gave her a choice. A happy girl of modest means, Kate hardly expected to become a maker of kings. But when her sister impulsively marries King Edward IV in secret, Katherine's life is no longer hers to control...
So far I am in love this medieval historical fiction. It's so well written and from the point of Katherine "Kate" and her husband Harry. To describe my opinion of this book so soon would not give credit to the story so I will be back, when this novel is complete hopefully with a new author to love.
Today I downloaded The Winter Letter (The King of All) by Dustan Stanely - it's free today on Kindle and no, I haven't started reading it.
Near the closing the letter reads: Tomorrow, get on the 3:30 train. Go south. Get off at sunset and walk deep into the eastern woods. Knock on the door of the only house you come across...
Did this so-called king know what was going to happen beforehand or did he orchestrate the ordeal himself? Will must know, so he sets out on an epic journey that takes him to a world full of magic and war, with new friends and new enemies. In the end he comes face to face with the one responsible. His life will never be the same.
Lovers of simple fantasy with deep meaning, such as The Chronicles of Narnia and A Wrinkle in Time, will fall full into this simple story based on the deeper truths of love, hope, and faith!
