Persephone Update 6
First things first: Verity drew yesterday's winner of Good Evening, Mrs Craven. Congratulations and please email your address so that I can post you your copy.
Here is receipt of yesterday's prize.
Check out today's photograph on The Persephone Post! Thank you to Persephone Books for the acknowledgement of Persephone Reading Week. Thank you too to Simon T for his review of Minnie's Room: the Peacetime Stories of Mollie Panter-Downes; I know that I'll be trying to read that soon after I read my own copy of the Wartime stories we are offering as prize copies (comment, comment, comment!)
We also have Claire's (the other Claire!) review of her first Persephone, which she was "truly charmed" by and which fits in well with my special competition today.
I am also sharing my favourite Persephone with you later today so stay tuned for that!
Read Book Psmith's reading notes last night on Miss Buncle's Book, doesn't it make you want to pick up a copy this instant?!
Also, a quote from another blog that Darlene read, mentioned in her comments, has me VERY intrigued by Little Boy Lost... Do I finish this week with the heartrending -Saplings or Little Boy Lost- or the delightful, Miss Buncle's Book? Dilemmas, dilemmas.
Danielle is savouring House-Bound, like a fine wine.
Lastly, Christy has created a new banner for her blog in honour of Persephone Reading Week, isn't it beautiful?
Appropriately the sky is grey as is my outfit for when I meet Verity today for some book shopping (are you envious?!) Verity is also kindly allowing me to borrow Hetty Dorval as I have been itching to read it since, well, yesterday!
Speaking of Verity, have you seen her My Persephone Life? Moreover, to coincide with Persephone Week, we also have another Virago/Persephone review.
