I went to a bookstore this weekend. Me in a bookstore is a bad thing for the pocketbook - and Saturday was no different. So, why was I there? The local Barnes and Noble was holding a Book Fair for our RWA Chapter. We had six chapter members there signing books and chatting with the customers, so I felt I should come out to support them. I bought two historicals from my chaptermates, Pretend I'm Yours
by Phyllis Campbell
, and To Tempt A Scotsman
by Victoria Dahl
. I can't wait to delve into them - they are my reward for getting through my edits on Gypsy Legacy: The Marquis
, which is another reason why I shouldn't have spent 2+ hours in a bookstore on a Saturday afternoon. *sigh* There just aren't enough hours in the day.
I also bought myself a new history book. This one, 365: Your Date With History
, is full of interesting tales and fun facts for each day of the year. You will see some of them soon as part of my continuing contest. Did you know that arguably, the most heinous murder in history happened on September 21, 1327? I still get the shudders when I think of it. You'll have to look it up yourself and tell me what you think.
I'll be back later with today's entry in my This Day in History Contest, so stay tuned!
