Valli - yes, I read that back in the late 90s or just into 2000. It was fascinating.

I have just finished Bernard Cornwell's Winter King, and have posted it to my bookshelf. It is the only one in the system. Just go to my books shelf and request it if you want.

It was quite good. The first in Arthur trilogy. I look forward to reading the rest.

Up for grabs is the copy of Stephen Lawhead's Hood, which I just finished last night. It's a fun, fast read. Lawhead has taken the Robin Hood myth and set it in 11th century Wales. It's the first book in a trilogy.

Here is the version I have:

If you'd like it, please add it to your wishlist and then PM me! Thanks so much.
