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

Booking Through Thursday - One Question

Booking through Thursday is hosted by Deb at Wordpress.

Q: If you could ask your favorite author (alive or dead) one question … who would you ask, and what would the question be?

Wow! This one required some thinking but I'd probably want to question Sharon Kay Penman. I think I'd probably ask her, based on how successful Sunne in Splendour is and how so many people love it, would she ever consider writing more about the Wars of the Roses? I think I read some where that she had no plans to write on the Tudors but I'd love to read more from her about the Wars of the Roses.


  1. I have most of SKP books, but haven't read them yet. I really need to move them up!

  2. I loved the Henry and Eleanor Trilogy. She is a great writer. After finally trying really heard to get the Here Be Dragons series, I now have them sitting on my shelf waiting for me to stop with all the reviewing obligations.
    Good pick!
