Books from the Backlog, hosted by Carole's Random Life in Books, is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your shelf unread.
I stumbled onto this one thanks (again) to Chuckles. I have been toying with this one for a while because I have so many memes and features that I participate in, there are hardly time for reviews it feels like. But I am hoping this will also help with my whole TBR situation, so I can find some treasures that I have forgotten about.
Neglected Book of the Week
Why did I add Under the Black Flag to my TBR?
Have you read this book, or is it somewhere on your TBR? If you've read it, would you recommend it to others?
Yarr! There be no better reason for readin' a book than it bein' about the life.ReplyDelete
Arrrrg, I agree, matey!Delete
oooo i love pirates tooReplyDelete
sherry @ fundinmental
They're the coolest!Delete
I started that book once and got bored, but it might have been me, not the book. I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I hope so too!Delete
Pirates are one subject I've hardly read anything about-the exception was Teddy Bear Pirates which was fun!ReplyDelete
I have not read many either yet. Hopefully I get to this one soon!Delete
I'm not sure I've read a pirate book since Treasure Island! Hope you enjoy this oneReplyDelete
I liked Treasure Island - I loved the movie more, the one Christian Bale was in.Delete
You were in your pirate period?ReplyDelete
Ha, pretty much!Delete
LOL I love pirates too:)ReplyDelete
They're pretty bad-ass!Delete
Ooooh, just don't get me started...... [lol]ReplyDelete
Good or bad??!!Delete
Depends on your PoV. I just hate the way pirates have been romanticised/Disneyfied away from what they really were/are. There's a very good reason why civilised countries spent a great deal of time, gold & blood tracking pirates to their home ports and destroying them.Delete
This is very true. They're definitely the bad guys and did not have any of the redeeming qualities that their sea-faring brethren, the Vikings, did.Delete
Very True - LOL.... although Vikings haven't been quite as.... tamed as Pirates, not quite so.... cuddly.....Delete
True, but we are still honest about Vikings at least - we remember they're not cuddly!! lolDelete
