what's the last great book you read on a plane?
"a world lit only by fire, by william manchester. since i played eleanor of aquitaine, who existed in the 12th century, i've been absolutely fascinated by the dark ages, the middle ages - basically history between the fall of the roman empire to the renaissance. so this book is fantastic."
