Ever since I was given a Kobo e-book Reader for Xmas 2012, I have spent most of my time online, purchasing, downloading and reading e-books. I find that I am no longer comfortable reading hard-copy books. The e-reader is so much lighter to hold and carry than a heavy paper book.
I have always loved History and I love reading historical novels. I have several favourite historical authors already - Tasha Alexander, Deborah Harkness, Louis L'Amour, James Alexander Thom, Noah Gordon, Edward Rutherfurd and James Michener,
Today I found a new historical novel author - one whom I had never hard of before. His name is Colin Falconer. He is a Brit who later immigrated to Australia. He has written over 40 books in the last 25 years.
I also discovered a website that arranges virtual book tours for these historical authors. I have started this new blog because I thought that perhaps I could read these novels, review them and get involved in the virtual author book tours.
My Main Book Blog was just called Bibliohistoria. It ran for almost 7 years before I stopped writing. But not to worry. I do have a new personal website called - The Scanners Universe and also a new Pinterest account as well.
The Scanners Universe and my Pinterest page both cover all the topics and areas of life that I am interested in. I prefer to be a generalist and I have a wide variety of interests. I hate being forced to specialize in just one or two niches. I find that to be quite boring.
Below are links to my favourite authors and to the Virtual Book Tours Website and Facebook page.
