I ❤️ Persephone Biannually day!
This was recently in the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/14/books/persephone-books-women-london.html
❤️Finally got to see it in person! ❤️
Congratulations on your 100K milestone, @vivastory! 😀 Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
Before I sold my soul to Amazon, Crossword was my go-to place for books when I'd freshly fallen in love with reading. It's where I bought all of my early reads from classics to Stephen King books. Bookstores I'd really love to visit someday are Persephone Books and the Strand! 😍😍
My first #Persephonebooks online order! I went with this volume to sample more authors. And, it‘s my tribute to Persephone and the much-needed return to Spring!🌷
A delightful birthday #bookhaul from @Jess_Read_This - increasing my beloved Persephone shelf (and TBR!) with a couple of excellent additions. While also making me long for a trip to Literary London. And simultaneously causing swooning over these Persuasion bookmarks & new edition for my Austen shelf.
So much fun opening bookish boxes from cross-country kindred spirits 😁💕
🍶💐✍🏼📖I wanted to share a podcast for the Persephone lovers on Litsy. Tea and Tattle with Miranda and Sophie did a wonderful podcast devoted to their favorite Persephone books (October 24). Overall, I love this podcast. The Persephone episode was one I was scribbling notes down while listening. For newbies it‘s a helpful list. Seasoned Persephone readers might pat themselves on the back for a job well done/read. ❤️
This is my most cherished #bookhaul ever! I‘ve coveted #Persephone books for a long time, but they‘re a little pricey. I only own ONE grey edition like those pictured here, and when I was looking at my wishlist on BookDepo a few weeks ago to treat myself to ONE more, I noticed one was only $3. I found all these too for under $4! I was sure it was a typo so I ordered them all hoping they would arrive safely. And they did for less than $30!
I'm still trying to figure out #bookwitty - but I noticed some #persephonebooks love earlier this week 💜
The final piece of my #wintersolsticebookexchange #litsysecretsanta gift has arrived! Now I have the thrilling task of picking a new #PersephoneBooks book to redeem with my book voucher! Thanks again to @Betty for her generosity and thoughtfulness!!
#wantasagift Visit #Persephonebooks in London, the Strand, and re-visit Powell's, Parnassus and Malaprop's. Travel, travel, #travel to #indiebookstores. Got this mug from Malaprop's in Asheville. #12DaysofXmasPhoto
#septphotochallenge day 29 - short stories
This is a large and robust collection of 29 short stories, all authored by women, and originally published between 1909 and 1986. Some of the authors are otherwise published by #persephonebooks but others, like Dorothy Parker and Shirley Jackson, are not. #somethingforsept
All packed and ready for bookish adventure. Next stop, Washington DC. #NatBookFest or bust!
Tilney thinks I should be reading less in bed and putting more food in bowls. 😸
#24in48 done and done. First time and it was fun, will definitely do again! Thanks to all for the great experience!!!
Taking a break for dinner. I've been dipping into the Persephone book of short stories in between graphic novels, and that's been fun. I'm only 8ish hours into the #24in48 and am beginning to suspect I may not actually be able to do 24 full hours. Fingers crossed, though. I'm enjoying it, regardless.
