I got this link today, and thought it was interesting.  Not only because it added a book to my WL, but to contemplate how I'd have responded.  I would have also submitted "Here Be Dragons" by Sharon Kay Penman. 

What do you think?

Well, Mimi, I looked this over and found it interesting too! I think I probably added the same book you did to my WL! I checked out some more info on "Cities of the Flesh" by Zoe Oldenbourg on Amazon and stumbled upon another of her books that got rave reviews: "Heirs to the Kingdom". So, I ordered that one here on PBS. lol! These sites are dangerous!!!

That's so funny, it WAS "Cities of the Flesh" grin! I've never read her before, but several of her books looked good.

And I just picked up a copy of Cities of the Flesh at the book sale last Saturday for a nickle!

What book sales do you attend, Karla? I NEVER find books at that price!! (turning green with envy). But maybe that's okay b/c I can't imagine what my bookshelves would look like if I found books that cheap!wink
