I'm hooked on Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I like how it's a fun read but huge books.  I do love a good, thick book to climb into.  It's definitely fiction, it is about time travel after all, but she does a wonderful job of describing the surroundings of Scotland, England and America in a historical context.  Her attention to detail is wonderful.Philippa Gregory is a good writer if you want to learn more about British queens in a fictional way.  Her writing is a bit soap-opera-ish but let's face it, their lives were soap operas!Susan
