No can't say I have.  I have a bookshelf full of new books I still have to read.  These are four Emperer books, three Philippa Gregory books, two Nick Hornby books and the Billy Connolly book written by his wife.

The Billy Connolly one is good Very Happy  she's written 2 and I've read them both - good for a giggle lol

The Other Boleyn Girl Film

I'm reading the book at the moment (near the end) and I wanted to read up more on the history so I went along to Wikipedia and I found out that they are making a film of the book due to be released later this year!

Although they have two American's as the lead characters  Think

Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich, if anyone wants a really good laugh then she's the author for you, this book is the Stephanie Plum series and starts with One for the Money.  I laugh all the way through.

Incidentally, Mary Boleyn, as portrayed by Gregory, is for the most part a load of poo - in all likelihood she'd already been the whore of the king of France by the time she'd slept with HVIII.

It is a good book though...

Really?  I didn't read any of that on Wikipedia.  Must look in to it.  Although on wikipedia is says that they don't know the ages of the Boleyn sisters but it says that Mary is the older.  The book has her as the youngest sister who got married off at 13 or something.

To Kill a Mockingbird; brilliant straight-away, but it took me 200 pages to really get into it. It gives you a great opportunity to open up your mind some more.

I'm reading McCarthy's Bar again.

I only found out yesterday that Pete McCarthy had passed on Crying or Very sad

It is one of the funnest travel books I have had the pleasure to read.
