“I think it astonishingly good - complete and sharp an individual” Virginia Woolf

I had always loved the movie and I finally read the book and now I‘m re-watching the movie. They‘re both perfect.

LeahBergen I can‘t believe I‘ve never seen the movie! 7mo
Cuilin @LeahBergen it‘s very good. They change the timeline a little and you‘ll recognize every actor. 7mo

I was out of town this past weekend and (naturally) found a secondhand bookshop. Lo and behold, I found two #PersephoneBooks that look unread and still have their matching bookmarks.

The truly amazing thing is that I own about 75 Persephone books BUT NOT THESE TWO. 😆

jlhammar Wow, what a find! 12mo
AmyG You were meant to find them! 12mo
Tamra Jackpot! 🎰 12mo

LeahBergen @Reggie Thanks, Reggie! My best friend bought a little bag of these for me from an antique shop. 😆 They‘re called “shelf sitters”. I love their slightly creepy cuteness. 😆 12mo
LeahBergen @BarbaraBB I actually didn‘t realize I had so many. 😆😆 12mo

The other Day | Dorothy Whipple

Persephone book mail is some of the best book mail. 😄

The latest (and last) Dorothy Whipple to be published by #PersephoneBooks is a memoir of her childhood and, from the snippets that I‘ve read, it sounds wonderful. The bookmark and endpapers are particularly beautiful for this edition, too!

squirrelbrain Gorgeous! ❤️ 1y
TrishB Lovely ❤️ 1y
elkeOriginal SO pretty! And an updated catalogue - fun! 1y
