It was one of my favorite subjects in school and I still love reading and watching historical books and shows. I’ve been watching the PBS show Victoria (yes, I know it’s fiction but it’s based on historical characters!) and at the same time I’m listening to a biography of her descendants – George, Wilhelm, and Nicholas including their childhoods and the time leading up to WWI.
It’s amazing how much we know about Victoria and her relationships through letters to her large and far flung family. It makes me sad that I don’t write more letters but at least I have the blog and one day, one of these blog to book programs might actually work on my self hosted word press blog. I’d love to have a shelf of ‘diaries’ in my library.
