i actually prefer watching movies that are historical fiction... because i love the costumes, the dresses, the scenery, the old-fashioned houses and furniture etc. loved "Elizabeth~ the Golden Age", and can't wait to see the movie "The Other Boleyn Girl" based on Phillipa Gregory's book.
of course i love to read books, but usually go for other genres... thrillers, comedy, horror, chick-lit, true stories etc.
having said that... i have read hundreds of Catherine Cookson's books, this historical fiction author writes in a style that makes it a "light read", (or i should say "wrote" seeing she died... but it seems her family are still publishing her latest works).
