My order of the Mapp & Lucia set arrived today. Besides some damage to the slipcase and some slight water damage to the bottom of two of the spines (all disclosed), they‘re in perfect condition. 🥰 #foliosociety #foliofreaks

jillrhudy OH MY! 😍 3w
LeahBergen I have two left to read in this series and I know I‘ll be sad when I‘m done! 😩 3w
JenniferP I loved that series - so much fun! 3w
Ruthiella I too adored this series. It took a little while to warm up to it but after that I became a true Luciaphil! 3w

Who else got sucked into the Folio Society sale? Apparently I‘ve never ordered from them before, because the shipping price about blew me away. I know have a total of 12 Folios coming my way though, between the sale and a set of Mapp and Lucia that I bought secondhand. 😍😍 #foliosociety #foliofreaks

Reviewsbylola @Cinfhen obviously I‘m already living up to my New Years resolution to buy books. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 3w
Reviewsbylola @leahbergen please tell me you made an order!! 3w
Cinfhen Hehehe #TreatYoShelf ❤️ 3w

Liz_M 😲 oh thanks for letting me know about the sale! Now to see if the one I want is part of it.... 3w
Reviewsbylola 🤞🏻🤞🏻 @liz_m 3w
LeahBergen I didn‘t! I‘ve only purchased secondhand Folios for years and years now. I DID pop on to their site to see if a couple of their Josephine Tey books were included in the sale but they weren‘t. 😡 Hmph. 3w
LeahBergen Oh, and that Mapp and Lucia set you ordered is one of my all-time favourite Folio purchases! 💕💕 3w
BarbaraBB Twelve 😂. I love that. 3w
Reviewsbylola Same—I‘ve never bought new before! But there were some on my TBR that I decided I didn‘t want to pass up. Nicholas and Alexandra is one of my favorite books ever and the edition is so gorgeous that I decided to just bite the bullet and take advantage of the sale. @LeahBergen 3w
Reviewsbylola I‘ve been considering the Mapp&Lucia ever since I read the one book last winter. @LeahBergen 3w
Reviewsbylola Yeah, it‘s kind of obscene. 😆 @BarbaraBB 3w
Reviewsbylola Where do you usually buy secondhand @LeahBergen ? I found some at a bookshop in England, plus I‘ve ordered from eBay and Abebooks but I‘m wondering if there‘s somewhere else I should be looking. 3w
LeahBergen I was VERY tempted by that Nicholas and Alexandra! I love that book. ❤️ I‘ve been finding lots of Folios at secondhand bookshops lately (and even some at thrift shops). I‘ve also ordered from abebooks and that British dealer, Ardis Books (Returning customers get 10% off and the books are always in ‘very good‘ or better condition. I‘ve only ordered some harder to find titles from them, though). 3w
Mdargusch I totally got sucked in. 3w

My $6 #folio edition, plus some tomatoes. And some feathers I found yesterday on our walk. I have NO idea what the birds in my neighborhood have been up to. #SimplyFoxed had a great, sad article about Lear in a recent issue.

Aimeesue The tomatoes and feathers were already on the table. I'm just lazy. I had to pick as many tomatoes as possible today, because this morning I caught a squirrel out in a tomato pot and when I went out onto the deck, I found a whole pile of tomatoes - all with one bite out of them. Somebody thinks she's Ramona Quimby. (edited) 6mo

Sarah83 @Kalalalatja @erzascarletbookgasm I am still unsure. They are much cheaper now, I wouldn't buy them for the original price, but still there is the feeling of being betrayed... 7mo
rubyslippersreads There are a couple that tempt me, but I‘m not sure whether or not I‘ll give in. 😈 7mo
saresmoore Just drooling over here, but haven‘t bought anything! 7mo
LeahBergen I don‘t think I‘ll be buying anything as the few I wanted aren‘t in the sale. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 7mo
