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 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. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!!

I actually picked this book up 2 Fridays ago but I was so busy last week with VBS that I didn't have time to post it on Monday!

The Book of Eleanor, Pamela Kaufman

The year of Eleanor continues! This one caught my eye while I was browsing with my Book Club gals at Barnes and Noble during our ladies night out. I haven't looked at any reviews for it so I've got my fingers crossed!


  1. Love the cover -- it really leaps out at me!

    Happy reading!

  2. I hope you enjoy it. This book hasn't gotten the best reviews, but I know that's never stopped me from reading a book myself.

    My mailbox is HERE.

  3. Amy~I haven't looked at any reviews for it so I'm going in blind but when a book is about a favorite topic, I'll always give it a shot! :)

  4. Let us know what you think. I haven't seen this one before.

  5. Hey there – just swinging by for Monday to see what you are reading. Have a great week. Stop by The Wormhole to check out what I have gotten and what I have been reading too. Happy reading! Bev.
