Just in case anyone wasn‘t sure that this book was made for me- check out the end papers. 😄
(We shall just ignore what happens to the Aimee in the book and meander on our way now, yes?)

LeahBergen And it‘s even spelled the same! 👍🏻 1y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen All the other versions are just spelled wrong. 😂😂😂 1y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen Have just realized that I would never in a million years identify with a character named "Amy." Huh. (edited) 1y

Framley Parsonage | Anthony Trollope

Found stacks of Folios at Riverby Books in Fredericksburg, VA today. I tried to restrain myself and still ended up with five. Waugh‘s The Loved One, and 4 Trollopes - tagged book, and The American Senator, Phineas Redux, and Lady Anna.

Lcsmcat Oooh! Lovely! 1y
batsy Score! 😍 1y
LeahBergen Nice! 👏🏻👏🏻 1y
Aimeesue There were literally four three-foot-high stacks of Folios. A lot of Trollope and the compilation volumes, the Best of Punch one, for example. 1y

Sense & Sensibility | Jane Austen
post image

Inspired by all the other janeites out there, I thought I would make a post of my Austen collection for the #janeaustenswap. And I must admit, I was pretty surprised I didn‘t have any retellings/rewritings! So for my match, this might be a good place to start 😉 I‘m up for both fiction and nonfiction, and anything in between!

I‘m so excited for this swap, and have already started looking into what to get my match 👏

A Folio Society Handbook | Brian Codling, The Folio Society

Three new editions for my collection. I ordered these from my favourite second-hand dealer at 1pm on Thursday and they arrived yesterday, now that's service! The titles are the Shooting Party by Anton Chekhov, A Month in the Country by AL Carr and the Owl Service by Alan Garner. The Owl Service is sold out on the FS website but this one was still shrink-wrapped ✊ (belated) #foliofriday

TrishB Lovely ❤️ 2y

Happy #FolioFriday! My #FolioSociety sale books finally arrived. Being in the US, it takes SO long to get them! I really used self-control (not sure where THAT came from!) and am super happy with these 2 additions to my shelves. I‘d been searching for a nice used Bloody Chamber so this sale was a godsend.

Moray_Reads Lovely. The illustration in the Bloody Chamber are just gorgeous 2y
Sarah83 Looks pretty great 🤗 2y
Kalalalatja I love this edition of The Bloody Chamber 👌 2y

Hello, #FolioFreaks! Arriving on my doorstep today for #FolioFriday is this mint condition set of complete Jane Austen. I love the older editions‘ wood engravings by Joan Hassall and the red binding of this 1975 set just sent my heart aflutter.
So I bought it.
No impulse control—but also no regrets!
