So I am in Costco about a year ago and there is a book sitting there in hardcover for about $13.00. It's titled The Historian and there is a pretty good buzz going on about the book. I'm feeling rich that day, so I pick it up and promptly read about five pages. I am bored stiff by the writing and put it in my closet, chalking it up to me being a sucker.
Fast forward about a year and I am bored at work without a novel to read during Silent Sustained Reading. Sitting in my closet is that book. It is a story dealing with the legends and history of Vlad Dracula. So I start reading it again and it is really interesting. He was one sick man. The great thing about the book is that it has found a way to be informative, with real information about Vlad the Impaler, and at the same time be pretty entertaining. I am almost finished, so when I get done I'll review the book in depth.
Oh, the picture of Kate is because in the movie Van Helsing she was a vampire hunter or something. It works, trust me.
