    When you get through researching your family, will you do mine?

  3. I got The Landlord's Black-Eyed Daughter too!

    I am interested in Ancestry.com too. Is it a free service?

  4. I had a relative that was a fountain of information when it came to our family history. I loved to listen to the stories that she had to tell. Sadly she passed away recently and I worry that all of that information will be gone as well. Good luck finding more about your ancestry!

  8. Hmmm....I wonder how much of "The Black Eyed Daughter" will be a retelling of "The Highway Man" poem by Alfred Noyes, one of my favorite poems.

    I'd better stay away from Ancestry.com...I tend to get obsessed with online activities!

  23. Like you told me, it's all about quality not quantity ... there's just not enough hours in the day is there LOL.

    I've heard good things about It Happened One Bite so hope you enjoy it

    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  24. I really want to read Devil's Star, but I started with Redbreast and I need to read Nemesis first. You should really enjoy this one. His books are good.

  25. The book jacket for Darcy and Fitzwilliam is stunning!

    I tend to steer away from all spin offs from P&P... can't wait to see if this one is worth reading.

    Hope you having a wonderful week!

    ps: I have one day left in Sydney (almost two days US time)... we are starting to prepare for our journey home, which includes 19 hours in a plane.
