Look at this #FolioSociety set that I found at a secondhand bookshop! Isn‘t it pretty?

I guess I should really get back to reading the series. 😆

An illustration from my #FolioSociety edition. As pretty as it is, I‘ll probably be reading on Kindle for portability. 😊

I went to the first (of two) big yearly charity book sales that we have in my city and made out quite well: some green Viragos, a couple of thrillers to stick in the camper for this summer‘s travels, and two foodie #FolioSociety editions. 👍

jlhammar Wow, great finds! Those Folios are beautiful. I‘ve been curious about that Cavanagh thriller. Sounds fun! 10mo
squirrelbrain Hubby loves Cavanagh books… perfect for in the camper he says! 😁 10mo
TheBookHippie The foodie in me 😍😍😍😍😍 10mo

Leftcoastzen Wow ! Nice haul! 🍎🍏 10mo
willaful How much do I love being at a site where someone will casually mention finding green Viragos? 😍 10mo
Tamra Exciting!! 😃 The thrill of the hunt is half the pleasure. 10mo
batsy Lovely! Those green Viragos 😍 10mo
LeahBergen @jlhammar @squirrelbrain “the serial killer is on the jury…” How could I resist? 😆 10mo
LeahBergen @TheBookHippie You‘d love these! 😊 10mo
LeahBergen @Leftcoastzen @batsy @willaful Thanks! I had to do one of those thoughtful pauses, “wait, do I have this green Virago already?” 🤔😆 (edited) 10mo
LeahBergen @Tamra I‘m addicted to the thrill of the book hunt. 😆 10mo
willaful My husband brought one home for me from a Little Free Library the other day. 😍 10mo
LeahBergen @willaful What a lucky find! Which one is it? 10mo
willaful Aurora Floyd. I can't remember if I've already read it.

(How annoying Litsy doesn't have the proper cover. 😁 )

LeahBergen @willaful Oh, nice! I haven‘t read her yet but I DID find a green Virago of Lady Audley‘s Secret last summer. 👍 10mo
Centique Oh those Folios! 😍 I do love books about food! 10mo

Day 8: #Friendship (or “freindship”, according to Jane‘s spelling 😉)

Love and Freindship is an epistolary novel written by Austen in her teens for the amusement of her family.


@CrowCAH @mabell

CrowCAH Have you seen the 2016 movie Love and Friendship? It‘s pretty close to the text. 2y
LeahBergen @CrowCAH I have seen that movie (loved it!) but it is based on Lady Susan (another of her epistolary novels) and they decided to call it by the name of this novel. Bizarre, don‘t you think? 2y
CrowCAH @LeahBergen yes, very confusing. 2y

I‘ve starting this chapter-a-day readalong with the #Pemberlittens and I‘ve been immediately captivated!

I haven‘t read a Gaskell (other than her ghost stories) since university. 👍

@jenniferw88 @sprainedbrain @StayCurious @MicrobeMom


DGRachel That‘s a beautiful edition! 2y
batsy Yes! I'm immediately drawn in. Gaskell really knows how to spin a story. (And that's a beautiful edition!) 2y
Centique It must be a great read because it‘s so beautiful to look at! I am going to get to Gaskell, I really am …. 🤞🤞 2y

nanuska_153 That edition looks amazing! Where did you get it? 2y
LeahBergen @DGRachel @batsy @Tamra @staci.reads Whoever designed this Gaskell series for Folio Society was inspired. I love ‘em! 2y
LeahBergen @nanuska_153 The publisher is Folio Society. This series is out of print but I purchased mine secondhand. 👍 2y
LeahBergen @Centique I‘ve been meaning to read this for YEARS. When I saw this group read pop up I knew it was time. 😆 2y
MicrobeMom Yeah! I am so enjoying this one!! I am hooked! 2y
Suet624 I‘ve wanted to read this for a while now. It‘s not in the cards right now unfortunately. 2y
