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

Mailbox Mondays

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!!

Only have one to share this week!

Thank you Lynn for sending this to me! I can't wait to read it! I am always happy to get my hands on a novel about Richard III!! This one was published in the late 60's I believe so it will be interesting to see the author's take on Richard.


  1. I have this book as well as the sequel - it's either The Last Plantagenet or the Lost Plantagenet. Not sure when I'll get to it though.

  2. Sounds very unique! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  3. Oh this sounds wonderful! Thank you for bringing it to my attention...I love anything about Richard III!
