A book hangs from a monk's girdle, ready for instant use and protected from thieves and the elements. My medieval character keeps her writing safe by making this kind of girdle book bag. 

When I was researching the historical side of my conspiracy suspense thriller (The Grotto's Secret.) I found some interesting ways that medieval authors used to carry their books. Jump a few centuries ahead and we would carry our iPads or Kindle in our handbags.

These ancient girdle book bags are a highlight of some of the exciting chapters in The Grotto's Secret. Find out more weird and wonderful things I did while writing my historical conspiracy thriller.
