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 5, 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!

Only one this week.

Threads, Nell Gavin

I've been waiting for this one for a LONG time and I finally made it to the front of the waiting list on The author takes a really different look at Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII's relationship, showing them connected throughout many lifetimes.


  1. Sounds like an interesting read, enjoy!

  2. I read Threads many years ago now. I a pretty sure it was my first self published read, and I did like it once I worked out what was going on.

  3. Looks like a good book. Hope you enjoy it!
