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.

Queens Consort: England's Medieval Queens from Eleanor of Aquitaine to Elizabeth of York - Lisa Hilton I didn't care for this one at all. While I did like that Hilton touched on a few of the more unknown queens, this is a scandal sheet, with a particular emphasis on greed, witchcraft and adultery, all seen as signs of rebellion. To be fair, it's hard to cram five hundred years of history into a single book, but this one I didn't like at all.
