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 - July 12, 2010

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. It 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.

The Red Queen, Philippa Gregory

I received this from the publisher to review as part of the blog tour leading up to its publication next month. I have already finished it!

The White Queen, Philippa Gregory

This came in the package along with TRQ.


  1. I've got to get Gregory's books!

  2. I have The White Queen but haven't read it yet. I need to get it read so I can read The Red Queen.

  3. I think that if those both came in my mailbox, EVERY OTHER book would have to wait!

    My mailbox:

    Julie @ knitting and Sundries

  4. Such eye-catching covers - I hope you enjoy both books!

  5. Lovely!

    Here's mine:

  6. Enjoy your books. Two for me this week. Pussreboots.

  7. I read and enjoyed The White Queen. Happy reading!
