      Killing 25 Blogs With One Stone

      What a joy to find all these wonderful blogs about history and
      historical fiction, particularly as they focus for the most part on
      the Middle Ages! And what a pain to have to remember them all and
      check each one, one at a time, to see if the blog has a recent update
      and is about something of interest to you.

      Am I right?

      Take heart! Tales from Shield-wall Books
      http://nanhawthorne.blogspot.com contains an up-to-date list of 25
      (so far) of these blogs, complete with a snippet of the current entry
      and when it was last updated! One visit to Tales from Shield-wall
      Books http://nanhawthorne.blogspot.com and a glance down the right
      hand column to "Divers Parfit Blogges" and there they are.. every
      time you visit.

      Have a favorite you don't see below? If it fits our criteria, which I
      think is pretty obvious from the list below, then let us know about
      it and we will add it.
