Flaunting, Extravagent Queen

Linda, I have Queen of Provence. Once I receive Plantagenet Prelude which is on it's way to me, I will start reading the Plantagenet series. I read really quickly, should be through that one in a month or so.
I also have Star of Lancaster, but I don't have Vow of the Heron and I don't want to read them out of order.
Genie, I got Kathryn in the Court of Six Queens thsi year from my WL, so it CAN happen. I sent it on when I was finished so it will probably make the rounds this year. I couldn't keep it knowing how many people wanted to read it.
I'd love to know what other people who have read it thought.
The book I want most is Antony & Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough. Dying to read that one! I also really, really want the two David Falconieri books, but I don't think they will ever get posted. I've had them on my wishlist for well over a year and have never changed position in line. I'd also love to have Within the Fetterlock, but that is another one that I don't think will ever get posted.
I need to just go on an Amazon book buying spree. If I use the "Buy this Book" button, PBS will get some money, so really, it's selfish of me to not buy books. Right?! I wonder if that excuse will work on my hubby if I go on a book buying spree....!

I have a lot of the Plantagenet Plaidy books that I plan to read and post soon. I'm only missing the very last book now so I'm just going to go on and read the series and then read that last book later. I'll let you guys all know when I'm ready to post and try to fill in some gaps in the series for some of you.
Michelle, thanks for letting me know about the Captive Queen! I added them to my reminder list, so when I mail a book tomorrow I can get one with my quick credit.
Linda, I got your PM, sounds like a plan!
Yesterday, I got one of the wishlist books that I didn't think I'd ever get! You know, it's one of those books that you add to your wishlist and then the line never, ever moves at all. The book is Ada Blackjack by Jennifer Niven. Thank you oh-so-very-wonderful-best-buddy-ever who sent it to me!!!
Michelle, you still haven't told us which books you want most!
My most-wanted books are also hard-to-find with unmovable wishlists, but you never know!
The Ambitious Stepmother and Fortune's Slave by Fidelis Morgan
Elizabeth & Leicester: Power, Passion, Politics by Sarah Gristwood
Fitzempress' Law by Diana Norman
Having the Builders In, Having the Decorators In and The Seventh Son by Reay Tannahill
Master of Souls and A Prayer for the Damned by Peter Tremayne
Roma by Steven Saylor
... and any of the Kate Sedley Roger the Chapman mysteries on my list. I have the first eight books but I need the rest.
I have to think about what wish list books I want the most since I received two of the wishlist books I wanted the most for Christmas from two of my good PBS Buddys.
I received Nefertiti by Michelle Moran and City of Dreams by Beverly Swerlilng.Since these books were Christmas gifts and from too good friends they will go on my keeper shelf.
I have started reading Nefertiti it is such a good book.

I'm feeling your pain Michelle. I am off this week so I am going to try and read as much as posible and limit my time on the forums which distracts me from reading. I have sooooo many good books I am dying to delve into.
