The full list of new royalty books will become available on the Books page on May 1.

If I could only read one of the books listed above, I would pick… um, that's a tough one… OK, I'll pick Llywelyn ap Gruffudd because it's long (680 pages, according to Amazon's description), and I like detailed books. Which would you choose?
