I love this story! I never knew there was so much history in it. This copy actually has the story of how it was narrative under the original title of The String of Pearls that appeared in The People's Periodical and Family Library in 1846 and became a phenomenon in Britain. This copy is also written in the original text of the narrative. So much history in books ❤️

So I was about to start The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone when I noticed that I had Sweeney Todd in my stack for October. This is no bueno considering I'm the team captain for #TeamStoker and this is considered a slasher book 😲 so I decided to switch them! Sweeney Todd is now in the lineup for #24B4Monday 🍻👻🎉

TheReadingMermaid @kymmiesreads hello again sweetheart 👋😁 this is a weekend readathon that takes place every last weekend of the month. The overall goal is to hit 24 hours of reading time within the span of Thursday at midnight until Sunday at midnight. But I got to say, the main goal is just to read and have fun. We all set our own goals for ourselves and no goal is too small ❤️ 2mo
Bookwormjillk I‘m doing the readathon vs scareathlon juggling thing too. Great first day! 2mo

#Oldcoolbooks #pennydreadful
Ok, so this was a tough one for me. Penny dreadful were 19th century serials featuring crime, horror and the supernatural. They sold for a penny.

The Penny Dreadful tv series took noteworthy gothic characters and placed them in a new, but familiar, universe. Characters from the pictured books from my shelves feature in the tv series.

A rather longbow? 😝

Linsy Ooh, I might need to watch this show! Dorian Gray is my fav. ♥️♥️♥️ 2y

#OldCoolBooks #PennyDreadful 😱

I don't have any penny dreadful, but my 1976 copy of Readers Digest Strange Stories, Amazing Facts mentions at least two of the subjects of these sensational stories or comics. Varney the Vampire and Spring-Heeled Jack, the Terror of London. This book and especially the stranger and scarier stories in it gave me hours of entertainment growing up.😱

Linsy This is so great! ♥️ 1y
