AMIE DOES IT AGAIN!

OK I know I shouldn’t boast, it’s really not my thing, but Amie was #1 bestseller in genre again on Amazon.co.uk. Overall she was 10,761 and #1, #2, #4 in the various categories. This is the third time she has hit the dizzying heights and I guess I should go and collect her soon – I’m planning to start that after Easter. I was going to put up the screen shot, but it won’t work so that just serves me right for showing off. – She is discounted for another day and a half if you need a cheap read.

Anyway enough of that and on with the history lesson. We had got as far as Alfred’s reign, and it was during this time that the Anglo Saxon Chronicle was published ……

ANGLO SAXON CHRONICLE

….. which had all the news about his victories and Lady Windemere and the cakes etc.

ETHELRED THE UNREADY

Next we have Ethelred the Unready who was the next weak king of England. He was always late for everything, and so he was not there to defend England when the Danes came again.

DANEGELD, OWNED HALF OF BRITAIN

They would fine him Danegeld for not being on time and they came back again and again, until the last time – when Ethelred did not show up at all – because he was DEAD.

Another episode towards the weekend.
