A very tiny Doctor Who Fic...

No explicit spoilers for A Good Man Goes to War, but it won't make sense if you haven't watched itCollapse )

Historians...

Has anyone heard anything about Women in England 1760-1914: A Social History by Susie Steinbach? I saw it in Waterstones, and it looks quite good, but I'm not an expert.

Searching For A Book

Posted on 2010.03.11 at 01:28
For my Age of Justinian course, I need Justinian and Theodora by Robert Browning, 1971, Weidenfeld and Nicholson edition. It is proving almost impossible to get hold of this edition, as opposed to the Thames and Hudson version, printed the same year (WTF? says my mother, former employee of W&N). Any ideas?

I went to John Lewis to get a pasta bowl...

I came away with a pasta bowl (not matching, I bought Denby Azure, at that time on special offer, and cannot afford it now) and a Cath Kidson teapot. It is a four cup, but only half filling it probably won't damage the tea.

Despite failing to watch a single episode of the first series, I discovered Lark Rise to Candleford at Christmas, and have been watching every episode since, having fallen in love unreservedly. It is, in fact, the only program I have been watching regularly, (I did watch Hunter, but that was only two episodes, and I have only just started watching Victorian Farm).

At present, I am avidly shipping Dorcas Lane/James Dowland, and started bouncing during tonight's episode. (I also keep getting ideas for PG-13 James/Dorcas Wedding Night fic, but that less said about that the better.)

I am developing a fondness for the French side of the French Revolution, and the Napoleonic Wars, and would like to read some books about it, which are not too British biased. Could any of you recommend some?
