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

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

♛ Grab your current read
♛ Open to a random page
♛ Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
♛ Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Book of Eleanor, Pamela Kaufman

I protested. "That sounds like tyranny, Mother. Isn't Henry supposed to be different from King Stephen? Won't he start another insurrection?"

I was in a school for jobelins: the thief presents the true owner with the stolen goods, then demands a reward.
