Not much out of the ordinary going on around here.
More cardinal pics in the messy garden. I'm in the midst of a very slow clean up.
I've got several books started, but I'm spending most of my reading time on a new biography of Anne Boleyn. I'm not much impressed with this biographer; although her bibliography is excellent, her opinions are expressed as fact. She has some information I've never seen before and some new ways of looking at things, but she has a very obvious agenda. Even if I may come to the same conclusion, her opinions go beyond what the historical documents state. If she just would say, "It seems probable that ...," or "It is likely that...," but no, she states it as absolute truth-- without evidence to back it up. I'm ranting and reading and flagging pages so that when I finish and review it on my book blog, I can do it with some accuracy.
I've always loved Anne Boleyn and am quite ready to see her in a sympathetic light, but I'm not impressed with the author's method.
The last non-fiction I read on this general subject was The Wives of Henry VIII by Antonia Fraser (YEARS ago, I admit) which I thought excellent. There are major discrepancies in interpretation between the two works. Not in fact, necessarily, but in presentation.
Sorry, I've no creative or quilty progress and am reduced to rambling. :)
Now, I'm off to get ready to take Laddie to the latest appointment.
