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

Tudor Book Challenge

Joined another challenge for 2010! Luckily all the ones I'm planning on participating in have books that can overlap. Even if they didn't, I'd still be doing them.

Here's the newest challenge I hope to finish! It is the Tudor Book Challenge, hosted by Michelle at Benedictionary. There are 4 levels you can join at but sign ups end on Dec 31!! There will be some prizes as well!

The Challenge Levels:

King or Queen – You are the ruler of your dominion. You will read at least 11 Tudor-related books.

Nobleman or Noblewoman - You are honorable, indeed. You have earned your title by agreeing to read at least 9 Tudor-related books.

Courtier – You are a rising star in the royal court. You have decided to read at least 7 Tudor-related books.

Commoner – Your role in the kingdom is small but mighty. You are going to read at least 5 Tudor-related books.

I am joining at the King or Queen level.
