A woodcut from my mom‘s OG BOTM Club Wuthering Heights. I grew up reading this edition, along with the matching Jane Eyre. #PemberLittens #WanderingThroughWutheringHeights

P. S. Note the horrifying typo at the bottom of the Emily cover. 🤭

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 . 😉


sprainedbrain You sound like me... hoping to get more out of it this time around. 😉 also, #FolioEnvy 9mo
rubyslippersreads My #littlebrasshand is waving at your #littlebrasshand. 😊 9mo
erzascarletbookgasm Folio 🤩. And where did you and Ruby got the little brass ✋? So cute! 9mo
rubyslippersreads @erzascarletbookgasm I got mine on Etsy, but I‘ve seen them on eBay too. 9mo
LeahBergen @erzascarletbookgasm Sorry! I forgot to reply. I found mine in a little $1.00 junk basket at a flea market. 😆 9mo

Jane with some of my vintage copies of Emma. I guess I‘m among the few Littens who like this book (I think @4thhouseontheleft and @Chrissyreadit do too). @LeahBergen @KVanRead Can you spot the #littlebrasshand? 😄 #PemberLittens #chapteraday

Chrissyreadit Yes! I do love Emma 🙌❤️ I‘m glad to be in good company. 9mo
mdm139 Emma is also my favorite Austen. Not doing the read a long but just wanted you to know you are not alone. 9mo
Palimpsest @rubyslippersreads I love this book! Emma and Pride and Prejudice are my favorites. 9mo

It‘s been snowing (and freezing!) here today. This calls for some hot chocolate and a vintage children‘s book, don‘t you think? 😉

ScientistSam I 💗 everything about this! 12mo
Megabooks Love your mug!! 11mo
Ruthiella Nice to see you pairing children‘s literature with a nonalcoholic drink for once...or did you spike it? 😂😂😂 11mo

LeahBergen @ScientistSam Aww, thanks! 😘 11mo
LeahBergen @Megabooks Thanks! I love anything with those old Penguin stripes. 🐧 11mo
MsMelissa Your mug 😍 11mo
LeahBergen @Ruthiella Haha! Nope, it‘s not spiked. I can‘t say that this book won‘t be paired with a glass of red wine later this evening, though! 😆 11mo
LeahBergen @MsMelissa It goes with the lovely matching Pride and Prejudice mug that I received from YOU. 🥰 The husband is having HIS hot chocolate out of that one right now. True story. 😂😂 11mo
MsMelissa I love it! My husband is currently sitting in his recliner beside me reading, but we don‘t have any hot beverages at the moment. I can‘t believe I haven‘t bought one of those mugs for myself yet, although I did recently order a very similar mug which I hope arrives sometime this week 🤞🏻 11mo
MsMelissa ...and I just visited the Penguin Canada shop. This is all your fault 🤣 11mo
LeahBergen @MsMelissa Oops! I can‘t wait to see all of your new mugs. 🤣🤣 11mo
Freespirit Stay warm🌞 11mo
QuietlyLaura This sounds wonderful! 😍 11mo
Suet624 Is that hand a bookmark?? 11mo
UwannaPublishme Keep warm over there! 11mo
LeahBergen @Suet624 It‘s actually a little brass clip that holds a book open. 😄 11mo
rubyslippersreads ❤️ this book (and the #littlebrasshand 😄). 11mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I just finished it and loved it! ❤️❤️❤️ I wish I could find the sequel but ... no luck. 😭😭 11mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen It was reprinted a few years ago, but I don‘t know if it‘s still available. But knowing you, you‘ll find a vintage copy in the wild. 😊 11mo

A couple of vintage Mansfield Parks (each in two volumes) from my mom‘s collection. They‘re very fragile, though, so I‘ll be reading an ebook. 😊 #PemberLittens #chapteraday #littlebrasshand

#ItalianBuddyRead #Pemberlittens
In a month where my reading mojo has been MIA, this buddy read has been a lifesaver. I loved the chilling gothic vibes, the high drama, the soap operatics, the arch villains and villainesses, the sweeping natural vistas, and the hint of subversive political tension underlying it all. Great thanks to @jenniferw88 for hosting and sharing her scholarship and shout out @DebinHawaii for making me 😂 every day.

rubyslippersreads Great photo with the little brass hand. 😊 12mo
LeahBergen The appearance of the little brass hand! 😆👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 12mo
