If you've seen HBOs THE TUDORS or want to, this is a good "the rest of the real story" quick read.

I enjoyed reading about Henry VIII's six wives.

I am relatively new to NOOK....   thought I was getting a book.... I paid for it and it was only 49 pages??? Free samples have more pages than that.   I felt really cheated and now, I won't buy another book, unless it tells the number of pages....  distinct down side to an e book vs. a book you hold in your hands and can see how big it is.
