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 meme created 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.

Mailbox Monday is on a blog tour! The popular meme is being hosted by Chick Loves Lit for the month of August!

Georgette Heyer's Regency World, Jennifer Klouster

Thank you so much Lizzy at Historically Obsessed for sending this one my way! I am already loving it!! It is a wonderful and detailed look at everything about the Regency period - from hats to gambling debt and everything in between.


  1. Sounds like a fun, interesting read. Enjoy!

  2. I read this one a few weeks ago and thought it had a lot of interesting and fun stuff in it. Enjoy!

  3. This book is on a lot of lists this week.

    Love the Chopin :)

  4. I haven't read Georgette Heyer yet, but so many people really like her. I need to remedy this. This one looks like a fascinating look into that world.
