(E) Elizabeth I (E) E-Reader Questionnaire

My favorite queen is Queen Elizabeth Tudor.
House House of Tudor
Born 7 September 1533
Died 24 March 1603
Reign 44 years, 127 days
There have been several movies about this popular queen.
Elizabeth (1998) and Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007) both starring Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth.
Elizabeth I (2005) starring Helen Mirren as Elizabeth.
Elizabeth R (1971) a Masterpiece Theater production starring Glenda Jackson as Elizabeth.
Elizabeth I: The Virgin Queen (2005) a more recent Masterpiece Theater production starring Anne-Marie Duff as Elizabeth.
The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) starring Bette Davis as Elizabeth.
This queen makes me love my name. I used to hate it as a child, it was too long, but now it is regal, although I go by Liz now a days.

Elizabeth is also my favorite. I loved Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth. I though she really embodied the character.

Oh Room! I have not read that yet. When you read it I would like to hear your take. I have heard lots of mixed reviews.
Some good answers! I just love hearing about what people have on their e-readers.
You should try Pandora, its fun!

I wish Room was sharable, it isn't. :( Because I would lend it to you when I'm done. I've tried Pandora and I also downloaded some music from my itunes on there so when I'm on the train or away from a WIFI I can listen.
