HT News

I so wish I could afford to travel. Over at the Tudor Book Blog they have posted about a proposed tour in England next year featuring the sites associated with the Tudor Queens of England. Click on the link to see the proposed tour information.

Do you like The Sims. Next year there is going to be a medieval version. Read the full release here. (Thanks to Steven Till for finding this link originally)

Alyce from At Home With Books is clearing her bookshelves in August, and the options include two books that might be of interest to HT readers - The Madonnas of  Leningrad by Debra Dean and The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly McNees.

Other Giveaways

Hand of Isis by Jo Graham at All Booked Up.
An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon at Jenn's Bookshelves

  1. There's also a copy of The Red Queen up for grabs at Scandalous Women.

  2. I confess, I love the Sims although I don't play it very often as I tend to get lost for days in that game LOL. Thanks for the heads up, can't wait!

  3. Thanks Elizabeth. I have added your giveaway to the next HT News post.

    Alaine, I have avoided starting playing the Sims because I know that I wouldn't be able to stop myself from getting addicted!
