One Year Anniversary of The Five-Minute Medievalist Book

“I’m so excited to announce that this Thursday, April 6th, marks the first anniversary of my little book, The Five-Minute Medievalist! I collected some of my most popular articles and wrote a couple of new ones (on quirky words we still use, and medieval sex lives) to give people the chance to have some fun information about the Middle Ages offline, and the chance to give and trade a paperback with others who may not (yet) know about The Five-Minute Medievalist has made it to #2 on the Kindle Bestseller list, and now graces the shelves of the University of Toronto Bookstore. I couldn’t be more pleased!

“In order to thank-you, readers, for being a part of the journey, we gave away two signed copies of the book. Congratulations to Claudia and Rob!” ~ Danièle Cybulskie, aka The Five-Minute Medievalist
