Folks, I'm new to the study of the Tudor dynasty and Henry VIII in particular, but I've gotten completely sucked it and have been devouring blog articles on the Tudors, the Reformation and other related to pics.
This week marks a turning point for me, however, in that I've taken on a big fat (wonderful) book, Alyson Weir's “The Six Wives of Henry VIII.” I just started reading it, so this is not going to be a review, but suffice it to say that I'm reading it rather than sleeping…
I'm delighted to find fellow enthusiasts here. Great to meet you.

I have read The Six Wives of Henry VIII as well, and I think Alison Weir is a great author. It is fun to read this book, and it is very well researched and thoroughly enjoyable.
I bought Ms. Weir's The Lady in the Tower some weeks ago, and I am looking forward to reading it soon. Sadly I did not have enough time to start it until now.

I liked Alison Weir's book. Antonia Fraser's covers much of the same ground but I did think she was slightly biased towards Catherine of Aragon (or maybe that was just me). Another one taking in all six wives is David Starkey's Six Wives. He's re-examined a lot of the original sources which makes for an interesting read.
