Unlike many people I still use the public library. The service is hit and miss but I was pleased this week to find the latest (to me) books by Charlaine Harris and Janet Evanovich, not only in the library system but available and on the shelves (so many books are missing). I also recently borrowed a new biography of Margaret Beaufort. I was first fascinated by her amazing life seeing David Starkey's Monarchy documentary.
I like to alternate "heavy" history books with light fiction so I was especially pleased to join Stephanie Plum in the Burg after following the origins of the Tudor dynasty in 15th century England.
I was interested to see some of Margaret Beaufort's (and her son's and grandson's books) in the British Library Illuminated Manuscripts exhibit. There's too much to see though! I spent 2 hours there and saw most but not everything.
