All right, Christy, you're ON.

I'll take that challenge! I loves historical fiction ... to the point that if the house were burning down, I'd be saying, "Okay, I know. Hold ON. Let me finish this one page!"

Because I'm supposed to be *writing* historical fiction during 2011, I'll sign on at the Struggling the Addiction level.

Can't wait to see which books you choose to read. I'm taking part and aiming for Severe Bookaholism, too.
