End up on the page. It is time for Pre-Reads. Every last Wednesday of the month I showcase eight recently published fiction and non-fiction pertaining to the 19th century. All books are gleaned from either Library Journal, Baker and Taylor, Kirkus Review, Publisher’s Weekly, and Amazon. The summaries and reviews are quoted directly from these sources. I make it a point to display a well rounded collection for you, Dear Reader, because I know not all 19th century aficionados are into historical romances. Although this month’s list runs the gamut from Regency to Edwardian with some Steampunk, for good measure. If you see a book that catches your eye be sure to politely
pester request the title at your local library or failing that, your favorite book store. Make a list of them all if need be. Are your pencils at the ready?
