My 2024 reading planner. The B is supposed to stand for Bridgerton, but since I‘m only a casual fan, I‘ve decided the B stands for books. 😄

CrowCAH Aww yay! 🥰 Yes the pen was from one of the Austen book challenges! 6mo

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

Mr Tibbits's Catholic School | Ysenda Maxtone Graham

I‘m currently reading (and really enjoying!) this #SlightlyFoxed book about a South Kensington Catholic boy‘s school. It follows its history from 1934 until the present day with lots of tidbits about eccentric teachers, headmasters, and quotes from past students.

LeahBergen @Suet624 It‘s one of those “micro histories” that speaks so much about a certain era. 13mo

The top two books are Tenant in two volumes, from a 12-volume Brontë set that was my mom‘s. The bottom edition I bought for the lovely Edmund Dulac illustrations.

Here‘s another book I have on the go and it‘s my first (but definitely not my last!) by this Scottish cozy middlebrow author.

Twenty-five-year-old Beatrice, a shy homebody, is left at loose ends when her mother dies; she has a comfortable income but no home to call her home. She moves from Glasgow to London stay at her wealthy brother‘s house but as the family can‘t be bothered with her she strikes out to find where she fits in.

LeahBergen Swipe to see the truly horrendous republished cover for this 1935 novel. 🤣🤣 (edited) 2y

LeahBergen @sarahbarnes @EvieBee Right? Like there were no other stock photos available? 😆 2y
EvieBee However! I do need to see the rest of that cute cover in pink with the 🫖. 2y
Centique Oh my god that cover 😳 2y
DebinHawaii @LeahBergen The republished cover is SO BAD! 😱😳😂 2y
rubyslippersreads Does the #littlebrasshand think it‘s a biography? 😂 2y
LeahBergen @Centique @DebinHawaii It would be more fitting for a serial killer novel. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads It thinks it surely deserves one. 😆 2y

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 . 😉

#FolioSociety

sprainedbrain You sound like me... hoping to get more out of it this time around. 😉 also, #FolioEnvy 3y

LeahBergen @erzascarletbookgasm Sorry! I forgot to reply. I found mine in a little $1.00 junk basket at a flea market. 😆 3y
LeahBergen @Andrea313 Here‘s the title page. Same, right? 1w
Andrea313 @LeahBergen Yes, exactly the same! Are the exterior covers completely burgundy, or just the spines? 1w
LeahBergen @Andrea313 Just the spines are burgundy and the rest is an ecru background with a burgundy motif to match yours. You can see a teeny bit of it in this photo. 1w
