TodayWhyIReadHistoricals is the day that readers and writers get to chime in on why they like historical novels!

It made me think ~

For me historicals are an escape to a simpler time. Westerns especially tend to be morality plays and I like that. I love to think that the Code of the West really meant something. And that cowboys are the knights of America. (Okay – probably very much a fairytale, but hey – a gal can dream!) I also enjoy learning history and having it couched in a good story makes it all the more enjoyable.

How about you?  Any thoughts?
