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.

Shooting Victoria: Madness, Mayhem, and the Rebirth of the British Monarchy - Paul Thomas Murphy A very good collective biography that goes a step farther. The story deals with the people who tried to assassinate Queen Victoria, along with their stories, associated events, and how the British monarchy switched from the dislikable, excessive Hanoverans to what we know today. Very well written, excellent notes and sources, and two inserts of photographs. For anyone interested in British monarchy, this is a must read. Five stars overall.
