This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

This Day in History...

No historical tidbits the last couple of days as I've been out of town. Found this interesting one this morning...

September 14, 1752 - The 3rd of September became the 14th as the Gregorian Calendar was introduced into Britain, changing from the Julian calendar.

  1. Hello Lady Gwyn,

    I'm with Quirk Books. I came across your blog and saw that you plan on reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I hope you enjoy it! I was wondering if you would like to be put on a mailing list to receive future news about the Quirk Classic series. In just a few weeks, we'll be announcing the next title.
    If not, that's okay. We won't bug you again.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact the publicity manager, Melissa Monachello,

    Thank you for reading!
