I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Off With Their Heads! - In Pictures

In continuing Off With Their Heads! Week, I have put together a slide show of contemporary drawings and paintings of the executions or the events leading up to the exections. There are a couple exceptions where I could not find contemporary works - so I used some screen captures from the Tudors.

  1. Wonderful concept, if a bit macabre.


  2. Man of la Books - thanks for stopping by!

  3. Interesting. I will never understand the public interest in watching a public execution as entertainment. Bringing children along just hurts to think about.

  4. LibraryPat - I cannot understand it either. I know that I would never want to go and why bring a kid to it, I will never know.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
