Now is your chance to help decide which two titles will be picked as The Gilded Pen Book Club's reads for July and win a copy of either DUCHESS BY NIGHT by Eloisa James or AFTER THE KISS by Suzanne Enoch!
Just check out the post on our club page to enter!
Since your focus is on the royalty, you probably don't have anything on this, but I'm currently looking for info on banking and investments; where money (coins) were kept, how they were deposited with a bank, how people invested in things like canals, how the Exchange operated. If you know of any sources, I'd appreciate a heads-up!
Thanks for the recommendations. I have the Carolly Erickson book but am always actively looking to acquire more memoirs. Now, if I just had the time to read them all! I do belong to Beau Monde, though I mostly lurk. It's such a fun and informative group. Short of selling my house and moving into town, I don't have many options for faster computer service until I can persuade the phone co into doing dsl...alas. It's become a huge stumbling block to be stuck on dial-up. But since a move isn't in the future, I'll just have to be patient. Not one of my strong points!
Wow, I love your bookshelf! When I get to a faster computer (I live in the boonies and the phone company refuses to give us dsl) I'll check out your myspace page. Since I write English Regency, do you have any memoirs/bios that you particularly like for that period? Thanks!
