North and South | Elizabeth Gaskell

"I know you despise me; allow me to say, it is because you do not understand me."

They call it an industrial 'Pride and Prejudice'. Placed somewhere between the socialist realisation of Dickens and the female oriented romantic narratives of Austen, Gaskell offers a perfect balance between so many binaries.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that the best way of reading is with a cat hugging one‘s legs”
D‘oh! And he just started snoring.

Another edition to my #northandsouth collection, this one is tiny, thin pages, but! It‘s a delightful hardcover, with golden edges and lovely bookmark. And a font is legible size. Loving it!

"He had known what love was – a sharp pang, a fierce experience, in the midst of whose flames he was struggling! but, through that furnace he would fight his way out into the serenity of middle age, – all the richer and more human for having known this great passion."

Partly because I'm loving making collages & partly because of busy Sat; made my #AprilTBR yesterday. Then I popped in to library to get audio CD(Killed at the Whim of a Hat) for the old vehicle cause Bluetooth connector thingy quit working. Spotted beautiful cover of Paris Aparment and 'needed' as well. So now we are up 2 more. 🤓 #booknerdproblems Definitely #aprilbookshowers @RealLifeReading

Crinoline_Laphroaig Because I haven't quite got hang of pic collage and you can see the titles. I'm tagging. It's like pushing elevator button. #justbecauseIcan 5y
