Birthday Books

New reading:

The Book of Margery Kempe, by Margery Kempe
This is the earliest surviving autobiography in English. Kempe lived about the time of Chaucer, 1373-1440.

Bede's The Ecclesiastical History of the English People
This classic early history is a book I've long wanted. I've read large portions online, but am glad to have a copy of my own.

It was a very "medieval" birthday!
