  1. I read a book set in London this week, too! The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees. Of course, it's back in Shakespeare's day and includes lots of scenes at the Globe.

  2. I'm glad you share the list, too, but enjoy listening to your ideas about several of the books too. I love these kinds of books, will try to find some. Have a lovely holiday week, Karen.

  3. I am not much of a creepy books reader, but I certainly appreciate this list for my students who are! Thank you!

  4. Great list - looking forward to check a few new ones out. Thanks

  6. Thanks for the cool list. Some I know, and some are new to me. I'm loving the podcasts!
