Persephone Update 2



So I'm acting as your personal Miss Linky and keeping you in the loop concerning some of the great Persephone Reading Week related posts that we have had so far today (or late last night GMT).

Simon T has intriguingly reviewed Princes in the Land for us here.

We already have another two reviews of The Victorian Chaise-Longue here and here!

Another popular choice is Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, a review of which has been written by Christy and also by Danielle.

Among the Persephone chat that's going on during the reading, Simon S wonderfully describes Persephone as "‘the Cath Kidson of the book world" and wants to have his very own shelf devoted to the imprint, which may look something like this and Claire asks if we are "torn between the elegant dove greys and the colourful classics"?

For anybody yet to join and/or seeking inspiration which Persephone to read, I have written previous reviews here, here and here, which may help.

Have I missed any of your reviews? Please link to them on my launch post yesterday to ensure you're entered into our prize draws and I'll include them in my update posts during the week.

Thanks, Jackie! There are a couple I've added to my wishlist already too (that weren't already there).

Verity, am I going overboard?!

Heather, thank you so much and I have given you your own post...

verity said...

No - it's wonderful - I wish I was doing the same!

You're on holiday and I have the time, so don't feel bad.

Do you want reviews just from this week or would you like us to offer a link to previously written reviews?

Green Road said...

Cath Kidston of the book world. That's a perfect description.

Nan, mainly this week's reviews as I am so swamped but if you have something that you would love to share then please post it in comments and if I can't get to it then at least it will be here for people to click on.

Sawti, isn't it?! Simon S should copyright that and sell it to Persephone for advertising (providing Cath K doesn't mind!)

Claire, you're very welcome. I'm having lots of fun too!
