Historical novels - reading by age/century

A quick post to share an idea with you. I went to a charity booksale today and picked up a couple Georgette Heyer novels, my first ones. I got to thinking though that I know nothing about the time period she writes about and that I'd like to put everything together and in historical context. Then I thought that it would be fun to focus on a century and read about and from it for a while. And then I found this amazing site, which groups all kinds of books by century.

What do you think, fans of historical fiction? Would a project like this enhance my enjoyment and understanding of authors like Georgette Heyer?
