What’s in a name?

“So, how do you pronounce ‘Read Queen’ – is it ‘Red‘ Queen or ‘Reed‘ Queen?”

Well, just as the Queen herself says:

“I love to read, the Queen she said, and in so doing I am well read.”

So the pronunciation is ‘red’ as a book must be ‘read’ in order to be a used book. It’s also an homage to The Red Queen of Lewis Carroll’s classic Through the Looking-Glass (the follow up to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), two of our favorite books.

In a quote all too fitting to our current times, Carroll’s Red Queen says “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!

Staff Pick: The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton – from Robin
-
Our first staff pick for February is The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels, the first book in Holton’s Dangerous Damsels series and one of Robin’s top two reads of 2022. And the third book in this historical fantasy/romance series, The Secret Service of Tea and Treason, is out April 18th.
-
This book is absolutely delightful, it is witty, charming with a whole society of spunky heroines and they fly around England in magical flying houses. A wonderful combination of historical fantasy, humor and romance, with a dash of gentile piracy, a spy or two and full of Austen references this book is a wonderfully unique adventure.
