What I’m reading

Monday, March 20, 2006

I’m so excited! My new research book came in today. I’ve been waiting to receive this book for about two months, as it’s out of print and I had to order it used through http://www.alibris.com/. It’s entitled Jane Austen and The Navy by Brian Southam. The next one I’m trying to get my hands on is What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool. Why am I so excited about these two books? Do you know how hard it is to find any research about the British Royal Navy in the early 19th Century—or about what times they ate their meals or how they were served—in Nashville?

I also picked up several new historical Christian fiction novels this weekend, when I realized it’s been over six months since I read a book in my genre (either contemporary or historic inspirational romance), so as soon as I finish a few critiques and the final revisions to my thesis manuscript this week, I really look forward to getting some reading done!
