Thanks to Garret:

Hello,

During the week of March 28 – April 3 we are reading Part III Chapter 3 The Dead Complain of their Burial. Christmastide 1530 and Part IV Chapter 1 Arrange Your Face. 1531 pp 272-337.


This thread will discuss the following:

Week 6 – March 28 – April 3 -> Part III Chpt 3 Part IV Chpt 1 pp 272-337


Remember, these weekly non spoiler threads are just that - non spoiler. There are many other threads where "spoiler information" can be placed including the glossary and any of the other supplemental threads.

We will open up a thread for each week's reading. Please make sure to post in the particular thread dedicated to those specific chapters and page numbers to avoid spoilers. We will also open up supplemental threads as we have done for other spotlighted reads.

We kicked off this book on February 21. We look forward to your participation. Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other noted on line booksellers do have copies of the book and shipment can be expedited. The book can also be obtained easily at your local library, on iTunes for the ipad, etc. However, be careful, some audible formats are abridged and not unabridged.

There is still time remaining to obtain the book and get started. There is no rush and we are thrilled to have you join us. It is never too late to get started and/or to post.

Welcome,

Garret

Garret (ggannuch) Cromwell is now fully in the king's favor, as a councilor. He works diligently on the kings divorce both in the courts and politically behind the scenes.

What do you think motivates him?

I am beginning to think power and control. He likes to believe that he has that special touch.

Garret (ggannuch) There is certainly that, isn't there. Do you think he also sees a chance to change things?

Well people who like power always like to feel that they can create situations and maneuver people, places, events around at their whim. I believe that he has a no nonsense and take charge attitude which invites change.

I am a little confused at the divisions for the audio here and on audible.com. So I hope that this comment is OK here.

But what I truly wonder if how Cromwell if so personally loyal and religious...could drop Woolsey like a hot potato which really is implied here (he is figuratively shown to be the dark shadow, etc.)
