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 for the month of September by Bermudaonion Weblog.

Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

I finally decided to buy another copy of this novel as the one I had started reading quite a long time ago has disappeared. Once I finish this one perhaps I'll venture into the plethora of sequels and the like.


  1. You are in for a treat if you've never read this before.

  2. I have a couple of copies. Haven't read any of them yet! I really need to as I love the movie! I'm sure the book would be better! Enjoy!

  3. You can't go wrong with Pride & Prejudice!

  4. I'm not a huge Austen Fan...I'm one of the few.

    I hope you enjoy it! I should read a classic soon. It has been so long.

  5. I was just at the bookstore today and I almost bought a copy of Penguin's edition of Pride and Prejudice. = ) Happy reading!

  6. One of my favorites! If you want to read any of the pseudo-sequels, the Pamela Aidan series is great. It's P&P from Darcy's viewpoint.
