Next live blog/read-along book!

Going on the past successes of the Henry: Virtuous Prince and The Sisters Who Would Be Queen threads, here's the next one!

When I posted on the main blog about Derek Wilson's new book A Brief History of Henry VIII, PhD Historian generously offered to do a "blog as you read" for this one. Since this book is inexpensive, this would be a good one to also do as a read-along for anyone who is interested. It is currently listed as "dispatched in 1 to 3 weeks" by Amazon UK and is "In Stock" at Amazon US (although the release date is technically March 9). And full disclosure, if you order through the links on the post above, it goes to my affiliate store and I get a small portion of the sale, which goes towards paying for web hosting and research books.


  1. I just wanted to let you know , that I love the liveblog/read-along book, and I wanted to know if anyone have read an advance copy of Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery by Eric Ives, or Mary Boleyn: The True Story of Henry VIII's Mistress by by Josephine Wilkinson ?

  2. As I understand it, Ives's book has not gone to press yet (it is not due in stores until August), to advance copies are not yet available. But I certainly want one!
