aeeklund I love this book. 2y
Sarah83 Where do you look instead of Folio Society? 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @Sarah83 abebooks.com but they are all different sellers so I have to read carefully for what the condition is and the shipping. 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @aeeklund @Jess_Read_This I have to read it now! I always wanted to...but you know...Life 😺 2y
Sarah83 Ah sounds great. ☺ I had a look at Amazon, but the conditions there are meh... Or too expensive 😣 2y
Jess_Read_This @elkeo Same. I have a copy (not as pretty as yours) that is sitting on my shelf. 2y
Moray_Reads I love this story. Marion is my hero (I have this edition too!) 2y

Happy #FolioFriday my #FolioFreaks!
As a castle freak, a Folio freak, and with a soft spot for Kafka, this copy of The Castle really makes me happy 😁

Barchester Towers | Anthony Trollope
post image


Here's one of my purchases from the "book town" of Sidney. I have somehow made it to this point in my life without reading any Trollope. ?


rubyslippersreads So pretty! I've read some of The Pallisers series, but none of the Barsetshire Chronicles, which I think then leads to reading Angela Thirkell. 😄 2y
Cinfhen 😻😻😻 2y
TrishB Lovely 💜 2y

Lcsmcat I love Trollope! 2y
BarbaraBB Me too, but I bought the whole Pallieter series to encourage myself! 2y
cathysaid Me too! Just read The Warden last week and am midway through Barchester Towers. I'm enjoying Trollope's dry wit and I suspect he's also a feminist...at least that's how I'm choosing to interpret some of his social commentary. Love this gorgeous set of books! Jealous 💚 2y
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I was always curious how the Thirkell series tied into Trollope's. Oh oh.... I may go #DrunkThirkelling soon. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @Cinfhen 😘😘 2y
LeahBergen @TrishB 😘😘 2y
LeahBergen @Lcsmcat Oh, good! I don't know how I haven't read him on one of my previous Vic Lit binges. 2y
LeahBergen @BarbaraBB I'll attempt to read these before buying any in that series. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @cathysaid Oh, good! I'm glad you're liking them. And thanks! 😘 2y
rubyslippersreads I haven't seen it, but there is a BBC miniseries of The Barchester Chronicles with Alan Rickman. 😍 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon PRETTY! I love they each are their own color 👏👏 2y
shawnmooney Nice! Barchester Towers is his most famous, but I found it rather dull compared to 2y
Chachic Gorgeous! Love the statue you included in the pic. 2y
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads And another series for me to watch! 2y
LeahBergen @elkeo 😘😘 2y
LeahBergen @shawnmooney Now you're really inspiring me to become a #TrollopeTrollop 😉 2y
LeahBergen @Chachic Thank you! 😘 2y
shawnmooney @LeahBergen We're both halfway there! 😂😂 2y
LeahBergen @shawnmooney Ha!! ? I've always liked the word "trollop" and amused myself when I bought these by telling the bookseller that I was "interested in the Trollopes up top". He had to take them off a high shelf. ? 2y
Sydsavvy OMG!!! I have made it through life without him, too. But I have a client who gave me a Trollop and is not happy that I haven't read it. 😑. I had never heard of him! 2y

Crusader Castles | T. E. Lawrence
post image

How's this for amazing castle info? T.E.Lawrence's photos and drawings accompany his thesis on the architectural influence of Crusader castles. Visiting Carcassonne was a #bucketlist trip for me. SO cool to see it all over in this #FolioSociety book.
#FolioFreaks #FolioFridays #castles

LeahBergen I have a thing for castles, too! 💕 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @LeahBergen People with taste do! You may need this. It's pretty fantastic 💕 3y
TrishB My retirement plan is to visit all the castles un the UK. Then Europe (hoping for a long and happy retirement!) @LeahBergen 3y
batsy Joining in on the castle love! What a wonderful plan @TrishB! If your suitcase is a little heavy it's probably coz of a few Littens squeezed in 😂 3y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen You and @elkeo need castles to hold all your books! 😄📚🏰 (edited) 3y

Crusader Castles | T. E. Lawrence
post image

I almost missed posting for #FolioFriday! This delightful castle book was part of my sale box last week. This is a thesis written by T.E.Lawrence on military architecture and the influence of Crusader castles. I know I won't understand most of it, but I am a castle FREAK. So I took a chance. And it paid off. This is packed with his photos and drawings. CASTLES!! Interiors to be posted next...
