This information comes from Barnes & Noble's Book Club page for Philippa Gregory:

Philippa's "Tudor" books -

Chronological order would be

The Constant Princess
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Boleyn Inheritance
The Queen's Fool
The Virgin's Lover

But they were published in a different order:
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Queen's Fool
The Virgin's Lover
The Constant Princess
The Boleyn Inheritance

Helpful information, if you need it!  Alas, It does say The Constant Princess *should* be read first if you want to be picky about it, and I don't have that one!

Crap!  I accidentally ordered a book I forgot I already had a copy of in my tbr pile.  I have the hardcover book club edition of Rosemary Hawley Jarman's Crown in Candlelight.  I'll throw it in as a freebie with any order from my shelf, just pm me.   I haven't read it yet and the synopsis on the cover is long but it's about Henry V, Katherine, Owen Tudor, and Henry VI.

This is available. Has anyone read it? Or read any of the other books by Cecelia Holland? There are a couple available by her that sound interesting.

I was wondering about Cecelia Holland myself, just last night. I ordered one her books, "Jerusalem," but I was wondering if anyone else has read anything by her. I have another one of her books "The Angel and the Sword" on my reminder list. I hope her books are as good as they sound.

I requested Jerusalem too. I also ordered An Ordinary Woman which is about the very first woman to move to the West.  I guess we'll both find out if her books are any good soon!

I just ordered "Great Maria" and another Holland book, "City of God" (about the Borgias).

Anyone heard of this author?

Wine of Satan - A Novel of the First Crusade
Author: Laverne Gay
Rating:
Book Type: Hardcover

I actually found a nice copy of this book at the thrift store today and just realized that this exact book is available here. Oh well, I only paid 2 bucks for it. That's cheaper than a credit.

Just saw that there is a copy of Catherine by Henry Troyat available. I think this one is wishlisted in other editions.

Also, this is available -

The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody : Great Figures of History Hilariously Humbled
Author: Will Cuppy
Rating:
Book Type: Hardcover
Publication Date: 1992

I'm reading this one now and it's a great light, comic read. Cuppy has a dry wit that makes a funny book.
