I'm reading Catherine the Great (thank you, Adre', for the loan), I am at a really good part and I need to find out what happens. If my Russian history was worth a flip, I'd already know exactly how this all works out, but then, I never took Russian history. I'm waiting to find out exactly how she becomes Empress. Does Peter (her turd husband) die, get shoved aside, is there a coup, what??????? Hence, I must go read. And, my brownies just dinged. Perfect combo for a hot summer day!
If you haven't read this, go get it. I can't put it down. It's a doozie!
