Welcome to Literary, etc! My primary goal is to discuss and review books. Depending on the mood, I’ll also discuss television, films, or a bit of art. I hope you, as a follower, will participate and hopefully take part in any reading challenges I may post or contribute to the blog as a guest poster or simply leave a comment.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one. ― George R.R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons
Hello! I’ve always enjoyed reading from a young age. My favorites were fairy tales and there was something about a dashing, heroic hero coming to the heroine’s assistance. The lure of Europe and its history intrigued me as a child and it’s no surprise to close friends and family that I became interested in the Middle Ages. I’m a Medievalist in training with an interest in 14th century England with regards to the legality of war and the law of arms. I’m a closeted James Blunt fan who drools over men in three piece business suits and a costume drama aficionado. I also have more fictional boyfriends than I have room for in my bed.
