Here‘s an interesting article for Georgette Heyer fans … and did you know that the #FolioSociety is publishing a new edition of Venetia?? 😯


BiblioLitten GH is my go-to romance writer 😊 2mo
Cathythoughts I tried her before.. but couldn‘t get into her. Maybe I‘ll try a sample of Venetia on kindle 👍🏻 2mo

Miss Pym Disposes | Josephine Tey

Today‘s book mail!

So, the two Tey novels in the back were used finds but I had to suck it up and buy the tagged book new. At least I bought it during the #FolioSociety sale! 😆

Did anyone else take advantage of their latest sale?

Leftcoastzen Pretty ! It‘s probably a good thing I didn‘t notice the sale.😁 4mo
CarolynM Yep, we got Teys too: Miss Pym, To Love and Daughter of Time🙂 4mo

Okay, #Pemberlittens! I started a day late but I‘m all caught up now. Let‘s see if I like this one more now than I did thirty years ago. 😆 I didn‘t necessarily dislike it back then but it wasn‘t one of my favourites.

And here‘s a #littlebrasshand for you @rubyslippersreads . 😉


sprainedbrain You sound like me... hoping to get more out of it this time around. 😉 also, #FolioEnvy 7mo

LeahBergen @erzascarletbookgasm Sorry! I forgot to reply. I found mine in a little $1.00 junk basket at a flea market. 😆 7mo

Starting to decorate the floating shelves by the fireplace today, and had to put out my Folio Society Austen‘s first!

The lighting is bad, but love the little sign from a past Litsy swap box paired with a picture of Maya in Paris TEN years ago! 😮

Cocktail hour led to reorganizing some of the books on my living room shelves. 😍 This is where all my really special books hang out, including my folio and Persephone collections. #persephone #foliosociety #foliofreaks

Queen Mary | James Pope-Hennessy

@shawnmooney and I are off on another royal buddy read and this one‘s a doozy ... 685 pages!

We vowed to read this one together after reading (and loving) The Quest For Queen Mary, which is basically the author‘s saucy secret notes compiled while he researched this tagged tome.

👑 👑 👑

TrishB Enjoy 😊 and hi 👋 @shawnmooney 13mo
MsMelissa Is that hand thing meant to hold pages in place? 13mo
readordierachel I was wondering the same as @Book_Fiend_Melissa 👆. What an interesting little object! 13mo

ShelleyBooksie Lovely photo! 13mo
LeahBergen @Book_Fiend_Melissa @readordierachel Well, I don‘t think it was made specifically for books but it is a page clip of sorts! I had noticed years ago that antiquarian book dealers used them in their catalogues to hold books open and I found this one in a $1 junk bucket at a flea market several summers ago and rescued it. 😆 I‘ve actually used it a lot for Litsy photos (usually #FolioSociety books). 13mo
LeahBergen @TrishB See, there he is! Just popping by to make sure I‘m not gossiping about him. 😆 @shawnmooney 😘 13mo
LeahBergen @ShelleyBooksie Thank you! ❤️ 13mo
TrishB @LeahBergen @shawnmooney miss those bails 😁❤️ 13mo
