My problem is I’ve never read anything by Peter Ackroyd. He’s supposed to be an “award-winning” author, but is his scholarship sound? So far, there are two books in the purported six book series. This one and the second one, which covers the Tudors up until the death of Elizabeth. If I spend the $3 on this book and can’t read it, that’s $3 less I can spend on a book I could read. Such a dilemma. The sale price is only good until next Monday, the 13th, according to the email I received. ^_^

I got all excited and ordered it right away on my nook... I haven't had time to read the description yet, so I really only have 2 things to say... $3. is nothing for potentially a good book. Most people spend that on a cup of coffee a couple of days a week. 2nd: nook lets you download a sample to see what you think before you buy.
But I'll let you know what I think when I'm done.

Has anyone read the Peter Ackroyd book “Foundation: The History of England from Its Earliest Beginnings to the Tudors”? The Nook version is on sale right now for $2.99, and I thought about downloading it. But I’ll only do so if the book is good, since I can’t return Nook books. ^_^
**I haven't lost my mind. It's backed up on disk somewhere.**
