LCG - re The Kennedys - great book.  I enjoyed it and learned a lot.

What I'm reading (on Kindle):

The Paris Wife (Hemingway's first wife's account of life with him - I recommend it)
The Botox Diaries - Avoid like the plague
Jewels - Danielle Steele - come on!  Enjoy. Beach read
The Year We Left Home - Jean Thompson (great book; bit depressing, so far and a bit hard to follow)
TV Writing Took Kit - because my script is coming together!!!!!!!!!!!!
A Rose for Mrs. Miniver  - for my Brit friends.  The bio of Greer Garson.  Charming read. I could read it again and again.

The House On The Strand by Daphne Du Maurier.  Also have the Ken Follet, Pillars of the Earth raring to go on my book shelf.  Have just finished watching 'The Kennedys' with Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, so I now have an interest in reading something about them...I noticed on the thread that a book on this subject is being read - so, that will be one of my next reads.

Just got back from an awesome sale at the bookstore.  Picked up Life & Times of Michael K by one of my favorite newer authors, JM Coetzee.  Also bought a book by -- this threw me -- the actor James Franco.  Between acting, being an author and getting his PhD in literature w/ a focus on the British Romantics, dude's living out all my dreams.  All he has to do now is appear in a musical and move to England.  He really should have been chosen to play Jeff Buckley in the upcoming biopic.  :(   He'd have captured his spirit, and that's what defines Jeff Buckley.

That sounds like a book I'd love, Gwendolyn, and I'm going to see if Kindle has it. 

Right now I'm reading:

"It's All About The Dress"  (beach read - Vicky Tiel - can't put it down)
"Rules of Civility" Amour Towles (a certain taste)
"Prime Time"  Jane Fonda (Kinda good - preachy but she's right)
"Becoming Marie Antoinette" Juliet Grey (light, good read)
"The Long Night"  Steve Wick (not sure yet)
"Night"  Elie Wiesel (Don't miss)
"Don't Bite Your Tongue (parenting book for brat kids) Ruth Nemzoff

The Palace Diaries, twelve years with HRH Prince Charles by Sarah Goodall & Nicholas Monson thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup
Hilarious little fluffy book. one of his ex-employees, A lady Clerk, tell's little anecdotes of her job at the palace and her personal life and how these two get mixed up some times.
It's very obvious she has more then just a little crush on our dear PC.  easter-lol He can do almost no wrong in her eyes (even though she got sacked in the end)
The book made me smirk a lot, giggle a little and laugh out loud once or twice.
It gives you a unique POV from someone who is close enough to get the juicy inside palace stories and yet far enough so she doesn't get dragged in to the personal lives/fights of the royals.
It's a ideal book for train or plane, I read it on the Eurostar from London to Brussels and I wasn't bored once!

At home with the Queen by Brian Hoey  thumbsup thumbsdown
It's informative if you wanna know how the palace staff structures work,
But the writing style is not my cuppa tea, it read a bit like a odd guide to the job's inside the palace.
Not as revealing or funny as I hoped but I haven't finished it yet so it might get better.
But it gives you a good idea on what happens day to day in the palace.
Good for info not good for entertainment.
