two books i borrowed from the library this morning, and a free bag of chocolates from a voucher in today’s mail on sunday newspaper.(there are more chocs in the bag than shown).

‘ the transatlantic marriage bureau’ tells a very interesting story about a time about 1895 when there were 9 american heiresses married to uk aristocrats, the largest number in any year.

the other book is by christian cameron, part of the tyrant series. historical fiction of the aftermath of alexander the great’s conquests featuring his generals who came after him. this is the last book of the series and is new to me. so i am starting from the end. added. 6.3.17 i find it impossible to read it, maybe that would teach me to start the series with the final book. or it might be the writing style. anyway i am abandoning it. the other book about the american marriages to aristrocrats is more interesting.
