Reading slump? Just buy more books, right? From Montclair Book Center and an NYRB order.

Birthday book shopping! Half used/half new. Two of the books are of publishers I collect: nyrb & the coveted Virago Modern Classics “green spines”. Needles to say it was a most excellent haul...Now off to finish the last week and a half of this semester so I can properly enjoy these books! #gradschool #archives #mlis #nyrb #viragomodernclassics

LeahBergen Happy Birthday! 📚📚📚 1y

Heartburn | Nora Ephron
post image

#BookMail Pt3 & the last from today is another Virago Modern Classics Edition, this time it‘s a Nora Ephron story called Heartburn. While it may not be as colourful as Frost In May or The View From The Harbour, if you look closely you can see little hidden details in the pattern. And that makes 7 VMC down, 6 to go! #ViragoModernClassics #ImABookMagpie

Cinfhen All those covers are spectacular 🧡🧡 2y

Frost In May | Antonia White

#BookMail Pt2 today is this gorgeous #ViragoModernClassics Edition Of Frost In May by Antonia White. These are such beautiful editions, yet another collection I‘m totally obsessed with (thank you again to @SavidgeReads for waving them in my face!) I really should finish buying one series before starting another, but I only have 2 more to collect in the Bloomsbury Modern Classics, so I indulged. #isithoardingifitsbooks #wegonnaneedabiggerhouse

ephemeralwaltz 😍😍 this one is gorgeous! 2y

Faces In The Water | Janet Frame

#HeatOfJuly #day5 #BlurredLines In a huge coincidence, today‘s #BookMail Pt1 has these amazing blurred lines on the cover with faces hidden in them. This is the 5th #ViragoModernClassics I‘ve added to my collection & is one of the most striking. With a foreword by Hilary Mantel, it should be a great read as well.👍

Cinfhen Oh wow 😲 stunning 🙌🏻 2y
Cathythoughts Oh that‘s really good ! Perfect cover for this prompt ❤️💙 2y
BarbaraBB I just have been eyeing that edition in my bookstore 😍 2y

A View of the Harbour | Elizabeth Taylor
post image

#BookMail Bk3 is a particularly pretty #ViragoModernClassics Edition of A View Of The Harbour by Elizabeth Taylor(am I the only one who thought it was the actress at first?) With a foreword by Sarah Waters, set in a small coastal village, it‘s a novel about secrets and lies. And did I mention how pretty it is?😍

sudi These covers are so pretty ❤ 2y
Nute I love Virago Press. The editions are gorgeous. 2y

Memento Mori | Muriel Spark
post image

#BookMail Bk2 is another #ViragoModernClassics, this time Memento Mori by Muriel Sparks. I‘m totally in love with these editions, the patterns on the covers, the French flaps plus the new forewords by other authors in the genre. Looks like I‘m gonna need a bigger library.

JennyM Beautiful Liz. How are you feeling? Xx 2y
Lizpixie @JennyM I had a giant needle stuck behind my kneecap today & got the news I need surgery on it. Other than that I‘m great!👍 Thanks for asking lovely.💕 2y
JennyM @Lizpixie 😳 that sounds horrendous!!! You must be exhausted with it all. Thinking of you and sending a hug and healthy wishes your way 2y
Lizpixie Thank you🙏 Chronic illness ends up consuming your life in the end, books & Litsy are my only escape most days. 2y

Some more #BookMail today, coz clearly if there‘s carpet space I don‘t have enough books😋. Bk1 is the #ViragoModernClassics 40th Anniversary Edition of Deep Water by Patricia Highsmith with a foreword by Gillian Flynn. Once again, Thankyou @SavidgeReads for giving me another book obsession!

Soubhiville Oh wow, great cover! 2y

#BookMail Pt11 is the first of my new obsession, #ViragoModernClassics. With gorgeous covers & French flaps, they are absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much @SavidgeReads your flaunting of them on YouTube has given me the bug too. On order, I also have Deep Water by Patricia Highsmith, A View Of The Harbour by Elizabeth Taylor & Memento Mori by Muriel Spark. Coz I have masses of room in my library. Not.🤗

Verity I have this in their designer hard cover edition and that‘s gorgeous too. But now they‘ve stared doing these new editions I‘m tempted to buy these too! 2y
Tashreads That is gorgeous. Will have to check them out. 2y

I just started reading this beautiful new hardback from @viragopress. It‘s an anthology, that celebrates the women and men, who have written the introductions to forty Virago Modern Classics over the last four decades. I‘ve always loved reading about the books that have shaped authors and why they love them, so this is definitely a treat to read!
