A few years ago, I lent two of my favorite Romanov books to a friend. Unpacking after a move, I realized that the books had never been returned.
Through the generosity of Felix, I now have those books again.....many, many thanks.

Thank you, thank you Laura!!  The two books came today.  So excited to have a new read, as I am almost finished with Fate of the Romanovs.  

This thread is such a great idea!!

Wow, this really is a great idea! I end up with duplicates all the time because I can never remember what I have. I will have to look through my bookcase now. Off the top of my head, I know I have an extra copy of THE LAST TSAR in Russian. I picked it up when I was in Russia, but because the covers were different, I thought they were different books. When I got hom, I realized they were the same. I don't know how many takers for a Russian version, but I would love to swap for something else  :).

you've got a PM, felix!
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

I know, but I just cant put it in the trash! Maybe  It could be made into a comedy!  I hate the book too!  I wanted to bleed myself when I got it, and spent a good deal for it. I thought it was a biography.  It sounded so good.
