#ColorMePretty #White
Didn‘t realise I don‘t have many white books at all! Love the movie adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany‘s too much I‘m scared to read the book since it‘s not exactly the same and I‘m afraid I will end up not liking Holly Golightly from the movie 🙈 But one day, I will be brave enough to read it! 😅

Penguin Classics always have the best collection and most gorgeous edition. I love these with their #frenchflap & deckle edges & the cover arts by artist Eric Nyquist.

Frankstein | Mary Shelley
post image

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
#ColorMePretty #BlackAndBlue
One of my favourite #Classics that took me by surprise. It‘s beautiful yet heartbreaking. About a man trying to play god & then turned his own back to his creation, while the creature just wanted to be understood & loved!

Anna Karenina | Leo Tolstoy
post image

“All the diversity, all the charm, and all the beauty of life are made up of light and shadow.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
Tolstoy totally captured my heart with his beautiful writing (assuming translations did his books justice) I cannot recommend this enough! It‘s more than a love story, it‘s also about family & choices you make in life. Amazing how it‘s still relevant now as it was then! #LetsTravelJuly #Russia #Quotes #bookquote #PenguinClassics #booknerd

Erofan Great book! Cute matreshkas 😍 5mo

Crime and Punishment | Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Also #ColorMePretty #RedAndBlack
Another #Classics That has been on my #TBR
Been wanting to read this epic tale but still waiting to be in the right mood to fully enjoy the writing. And I‘m still looking through different translations to find the one that suit me. I don‘t want to rush but slowly enjoy every details of it .
Are you picky when it comes to translation too? Or just me?

Caroline2 Yes!! I read this awesome article in The Guardian about different translations of Russian novels. Fascinating!! Now I do my research and google the book and different versions to see what people say. 👍🏻 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Caroline2 Oh! I did not realise such article existed! It sounds like one that I‘d love to read about and learn more about how to pick the right translations! I‘ll need to google about it! 😆🙌🏼 Thank you so much for the info ❤️ 5mo

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront

#ColorMePretty #Black

“I would always rather be happy than dignified”

I‘ve always love reading & libraries been my paradise on earth, but wasn't a big fan & didn‘t appreciate #Classics (except for few children‘s & “not romance” classics) til recently, when I don‘t have to analysis every details & then write papers about them.
What are your favourite Classics?

erzascarletbookgasm Love your collection 👍 5mo
julesG Love this picture! (I've followed you three times now, this is weird. I see your pictures in my feed, but whenever I look at your profile, you're marked as not followed by me. @TimSpalding @kgriffith @lorannen - any idea why that happens?) 5mo
Freespirit I love classics too..in 2017 I spent the year only reading classics...my top ones so far...The Moonstone and Women in White by Wilkie Collins, Count of Monte Christo , Rebecca, anything by Jane Austen, anything by the Bronte's, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Anna Karenina, Dracula, Little Women, Frankenstein, and I've just read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to add to the list😊 5mo

lorannen @julesG If you're following the @PostsAboutYourBooks account, that would be why! This is a post about a book you've stacked. 5mo
GypsyKat Great picture! 5mo
julesG @lorannen I'm following that account you've mentioned, but I haven't stacked this edition of Jane Eyre that is tagged. 😕 5mo
lorannen @julesG Posts About Your Books doesn't go by edition, I believe. If you've stacked a copy that matches title and author, you'll see the post. In fact, Litsy doesn't really have the concept of separate editions - in theory, the idea was to have one profile for each book (covering all editons). There are some duplicated records still out there, but this is part of our efforts to bring all duplicate records together in Litsy. 5mo
julesG @lorannen Thank you! Now this makes sense. Is there any way users could help getting rid of duplicates? Like flag a book when we notice there's more than one entry in the database? 5mo
julesG Eliza, sorry for hijacking your post. 5mo
BooknerdsLife @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you 💖 Trying to read more good books each year🙏🏼 5mo
BooknerdsLife @GypsyKat Awww Thank you Kat 💖🙌🏼 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Freespirit I‘ve grown to love & appreciate Classics the more I read them. Awww that‘s such a great idea to spend a whole year reading Classics alone! So many great books you‘ve read! I‘m not sure I‘m there yet but I will try reading more each year.. Love Anna Karenina, Picture of Dorian Gray, Frankenstein, Dracula too & My Cousin Rachel too! Definitely have Monte Christo, Rebecca, Woman In White & so many more are on my TBR 😍🙌🏼📚 5mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG Awww Thank you so much 🙏🏼💖 Wow! That‘s so weird & I sincerely thought I‘ve followed your account too!!! Now I‘m confused LOL 😂 5mo
BooknerdsLife @lorannen @julesG Hahaa I‘m not sure I understand all these 😅🙈 I‘m so used to Instagram and Litsy is all new to me 😆 But thank you for taking the time for the explanation 🥰❤️ 5mo
BooknerdsLife @julesG HAHAA No problem at all🤗I love reading all the interactions/ conversations 😊 the more the better 👍🏼 5mo

Dracula | Bram Stoker
post image

In case you‘re wondering, this is the book I brought home (from the Street Library). Never seen this edition before! It has all my 3 of my favorite #Horror #Classics in one! And an intro by #StephenKing ?! 😱 Going to reread one of the stories in October for Halloween 🎃
Do you like any of these? Which one would you read?
