March 12th, a week from today, marks the two year anniversary of this blog. I've had so much fun sharing tidbits of history and stories of interest with all of you, and have learned so much from my readers in turn. Thank you to everyone for reading, and especially for your comments!
What is a celebration without presents, though? I have a gift for one lucky visitor if you leave a comment on any post between now and next Monday. The winner will be chosen by a randomly-generated number, and yes, this goes for those who live outside of the USA as well. I will try my best to ship anywhere. What is this fabulous present you ask? A copy of Royaltys Strangest Characters. This book has been on my wishlist for a while, and I think we'd both enjoy it.
