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 - March 19, 2012

Mailbox Monday is now on tour! It is being hosted this month by Diary of an Eccentric. To find out more about the history of Mailbox Monday and a list of future hosts visit the Mailbox Monday site.

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

Two new ones this week!

Rose of York: Love and War, Sandra Worth

This is book one in the author's York trilogy and I've been waiting for over a year to get to the top of the waiting list on so I could read this book. Now to wait for the other ones...

The Three Colonels, Jack Caldwell

I received this one for review from Sourcebooks. It is about some of Austen's "fighting men" and looks pretty interesting.


  1. I was lucky enough to find 2 of the 3 York Trilogy books in a half price books in Houston. Haven't read them yet though :)

    Three Colonels does look interesting. Happy reading!

  2. I will be starting The Three Colonels soon and can't wait! Happy reading!
