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 Monday

Mailbox Monday is a weekly bookish meme 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!

The Scarlet Lion, Elizabeth Chadwick

Oh my god! Finally!! Thank you so much to the person who sent this to me! I actually jumped up and down in excitement when it was delivered! Can't wait to loose myself in the pages.


  1. Yay! Thank goodness it's almost May. I have been a year and a half without a new Chadwick. That is a long long time :)

  2. I can't wait to start it! Finishing up Lord John at the moment.

  3. Sounds like you have a secret book buddy! Enjoy.

  4. The Scarlet Lion is awesome, Robin! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Happy Reading!!

  5. Looks like a great book. Happy reading!
