Well, I looked on Netflix and the latest PBS program about the Royals (which is what I recorded) is indeed on DVD so perhaps we should wait for my 40" HD flatscreen TV. I bought another last year - The Windsors - which is quite good, starts with George V and works its way forward. All kinds of goodies. Let's shoot for June. I've a bunch of things on every weekend through May. Well, except for Memorial Day weekend, but I doubt anyone wants to sit around and watch TV on a holiday weekend.
I love the Kay Scarpetta books, but the last few have not been so satisfactory. I think "Black Notice" was the last one I really enjoyed. Well, enjoy might not be the best word as we are dealing with some fairly disgusting serial killers.
At any rate, you should read the first one and see how you like it. They should be read in order as there is an arc to the books. I have them all and can loan you the first at Thanksgiving.
Thanks, Kiki. I think Shelfari screwed up. I clicked on reply (to Maria G.'s May 31st Comment) I haven't read the book yet (I am planning to soon) but was bothered by her idiot comment about the "Jewishness" and how it was tiresome (because she wasn't Jewish) and obviously is not comfortable with books that address cultures that are not her own. That is all. I have said my peace. I am glad you liked the book. I am looking forward to reading it.
Hey Donna--I think Hoopidy was replying to the wrong person, 'cause I was checking out his shelf (he is a friend) and when I saw your note to him, I had to see what else you said (since I really liked the book as well!). Definitely a mistake! The person that said that was Maria G, I think. You can check it out yourself on the book page for History of Love.
Love your shelf by the way!
