Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

The Great Survivors: How Monarchy Made It into the Twenty-First Century - Peter Conradi A good look at the role, lifestyles and intrigues of modern Europe's monarchies. Plenty of scandals and triumphs, with some good photos and a speculative chapter on where monarchy may be in fifty years. Not complete, and a bit more media trivia driven than I would like. Still worth it to find if you're into royalty. Four stars overall and recommended.
