I'm here as well, although I have been on a history reading binge lately - trying to read from my bookshelves.  I'm over on Goodreads, too, but I didn't want to give up this forum!

I'm still here too.  HF world-just finished Donna Thornleigh's "Rebel Pirate".  loved, loved it.  set during the Revolution.  And BC's "The Pagan Lord".  In the middle of Gortner's "Tudor Vendetta".  as always Brendan's adventures are fast paced; just started a mystery HF by Stephen Martin-something "Galleon's"???  that's on my Kindle; my free read for the month.

I'm still here <waving>

 @Jan C: the titles you mentioned are intriguing; I've been interested lately in the Spanish galleon shipwrecks off the coast of the FL Keys, and of course the reason many of them wrecked was the local pirates....I've been doing a lot of reading on them both.

For work, I just finished Atul Gawande's The Checklist Manifesto. It was quite interesting! Debbie

Colleen-highly recommend Thornleigh's "Rebel Pirate" in that case.  Pirates are based out of Salem/Boston-but definitely American pirates-privateers.  

Martin's "Galleon's" is supposedly the first in the Henry Gresham series.  Elizabethean(sp??) and the Spanish Armada.  I'm further into the book now and it feels like I've been plopped down wo a script in some cases.  I'm off to research whether it really IS the first in the series or if there's another title that I should start with.

Rebel Pirate now on WL, thank you!

 

Let me know what your research turns up. I was at the Mel Fisher Museum (he's the salvage diver who found the wreck of La Senora de la Atocha, the flagship of a Spanish treasure fleet that sank in 1622. There were some interesting books for sale there, but in true PBS-er form, I took pictures of their covers to see if I could find them on PBS rather than pay the high (extremely high) prices there! cheeky

Still here! Just being my usual haphazard self about posting!  So glad to see that so many of you are still with us! I signed up for Good Reads, but I haven't had the time to get used to the format.  This place is so much more comfortable, and I really don't have time for both places - especially when the discussions will be largely similar.

Agree, Shelley! I love the email updates we get from Goodreads, but overall, I really prefer the forum format we get with PBS. 

It's good to see you!
