Hi Katie - if you're reading Rebecca, you should revive the discussion thread in Anglophiles. We'd love to see you there.
VIA ROYAL MAIL
Dear Ms. Dalloway-Halcombe:
In recognition of your most welcome participation in Anglophiles Anonymous during the year, The Queen has been graciously pleased, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the founding of said fellowship, to issue a Certificate of Warm Appreciation to you on this day, 5 January, 2011.
Neville Psmith, Esq.

Hi Trilby - haven't seen you on Anglophiles...do drop in and say a word or two so we know you haven't been lost to us already. It is a very active group and lurking is always noticed.
I'm posting this note to those who voted to read either Elizabeth and Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens or The Four Musketeers during our voting session. As you know, I offered up the option to read these instead of (or in addition to) King Leopold's Ghost as the votes for all three were very close with KLG beating the other two by only one vote. If you've read either of the alternates, the discussions threads for both books is now up on the History Non-Fiction Group discussion page. If you haven't read them yet, I have to say that I would not have chosen either book on my own but read them both in case the alternate books were chosen and I am very glad I did. They were both wonderfully written and informative. Discussion for King Leopold's Ghost will be posted mid-December to avoid the Christmas rush.
I am in receipt of your message and have communicated your wish to Lord Manleigh. I am happy to inform you that he has perused your Shelfari shelf and pronounced it "Anglophile-Approved". He also notes with interest your acquaintance with two of our members, Lady Catherine de Burr and Mrs. Constance Oxford-Whapdoodle. He begs me to inquire whether you solemnly swear not to Lurk, and by what peculiarly British alias you wish to be known at Anglophiles Anonymous. I look forward to your response.
Very interested in your opinion of the Landers' book. I haven't read it yet, although I intend to simply because it's an older book, but so many people really disliked it.
Many of us thought the book was not a good book to learn about the War of the Roses. I didn't even finish it so don't feel bad if you end up not liking it. You hit the nail on the head it is very confusing. Anyway let me know your final opinion.

The History Non-Fiction Group is voting for the Oct-Dec Quarterly Group read. We've had several interesting books nominated. Please take a look and vote if you'd like to join in.
I see you enjoyed Katherine. Such a great book that was. We are conducting a group vote in the Tudor group if you are interested. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the group reads but we'd love your participation if you can manage it.

Hi - I'm one of the Admins of The Lion and The Rose...welcome to the group! I see you said you prefer non-fiction; I also Admin the History Non-Fiction group and you might like to join us. We have a wide variety of interests across a lot of different history but it's a good group. Check us out - you can click on the group from my public pager or just search for the name.
Hi Kathleen. Have you checked out or considered joining the Lion and The Rose group? It deals with all periods of English history. I know you love Tudor history, but we do a group read each month on a specific period in English history and you might enjoy it. We are about to get into the plantagenet/wars of the roses period, which of course will lead us right into the Tudors.
