Hi Laura, many readers get advanced reader copies (ARC's) from the publishers and sometimes the authors before they hit the shelves. The copies come from many different means. Some print and some digital. I hope that helps. Happy Reading!


message 7: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I didn't think Between Two Fires by Mark Noce would be one I'd add, but "Historical fiction, the Middle Ages, barbarians, romance" got me. Although The Pillars of the Earth (The Pillars of the Earth, #1) by Ken Follett is probably much more barbaric (I'm guessing) and little romance at all, this one listed and how it's described just reminded me of "POTE". One of my favorites of all times so I added "Between Two Fires" to my shelf. Already have "The One Man" shelved.


Robert Thompson Yeah this needs to be here every week.

There's a whole GR group dedicated to this type of question, maybe they can help!

Amber Martingale Twice but the last time was so damned long ago I can't remember much other than the actor they hired to play US Gen. Patton wasn't as good as George C. Scott's version.

Amber Martingale Caroline: You're welcome.

Grace: Each to his (or her) own.


message 41: by Grace (new)

Grace I read mainly mysteries, especially British


message 42: by Amber (new)

Amber Martingale Hard to come by here in the US, Grace.


message 43: by Grace (new)

Grace Actually, when I visit Florida I've had no problems at all finding used British mystery books. We find them at those little lending libraries where you take a book and leave a book and also at all the used clothing etc. stores. I always indicate where I pchsd a book and I have a surprising number from Florida. Of course, I can always purchase on Amazon.


message 44: by LeeAnne (new)

LeeAnne I am halfway through The Perfect Horse, it is a good book. The same story but told from different viewpoints and also has quite a bit about Witez II one of the Arabians stolen from Poland who ended up with the Lipizzaners. I am partial to Equestrian themed books but they must be factual.

My favorite British Mystery writer is Dick Francis. He is no longer with us but his son Felix is carrying on really well.

FYI Miracle of the White Stallions is available on DVD on Amazon. The PBS series Nature recently did a really good show on them as well. Fantastic footage of the Spanish Riding School and Piber Stud. Well worth watching.

Grace Thanks for your info.
