Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen

#bookmail! S&S is my least favorite Austen, but I saw this #PenguinClassicsDeluxeEdition cover and had to have it. Yes, I have five copies of Persuasion already, but I don‘t have an annotated edition and I love this cover, too. I fear I will have to collect all of the annotated Austens. Dang it. #bookaddict #noshame #wellmaybealittle #cantstopwontstop #austenaddict

tammysue I don‘t blame you. Both are beautiful covers 💕 8mo
Theaelizabet Yeah, I love those annotated versions. Hard not to think that you need all of them. 8mo
readordierachel That S&S js just lovely! 8mo
LeahBergen I‘ve been thinking I need the annotated ones, too. 😬 8mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen Yes, you do. 😉😆 8mo

Persuasion | Jane Austen
post image

Today was a good day for #bookmail and bookish mail. Yes, I already own four copies of Persuasion, including one #PenguinClassicsDeluxeEdition, but I didn‘t have *this* one. The rest are my #BNBookHaul from their big sale. I shopped online because I never felt good enough to go to the store. (Maybe this weekend...). And thanks for the #LitsyLove Misty!

TrishB Lovely 💕 9mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Nice stack!!! And you‘re welcome ❤️❤️ 9mo
LeahBergen Oh, These Old Shades! 👏🏻👏🏻 It‘s such a fun and frothy read. 9mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen That‘s good to know. I may take a break from my other book obligations this weekend and read that one. I need something light and fun! 9mo

Heart of Darkness | Joseph Conrad

Having a rotten day, so I went to my local #indie for some retail therapy. They messed up my preorder for the newest Orphan X (of course, because I canceled my Amazon order of it) but they had the #PenguinClassicsDeluxeEdition of Heart of Darkness that I‘ve been dying to get my hands on, plus a Nordic crime thriller that looks ah-may-zing. I‘m still sad, but now I have new books, so that‘s a plus, right? 🥰

Kayla.Adriena Sorry you're having a bad day! Books always help ! 10mo
RachelO I hope your day gets better. But those are some great-looking books you have there 😍 10mo
BookNAround Sorry about your day. Hope you can still get Orphan X. 10mo

DGRachel @BookNAround Thanks. I will either wait patiently for the hardcover to arrive (should be Thursday afternoon) or I will re-order on Kindle if I decide I just can‘t wait and have it in both formats. I haven‘t decided, yet. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 10mo
LauraBeth I‘m glad you were able to get some book buying therapy in 💕 I have Unmarriageable on deck! 10mo
DGRachel @LauraBeth The Sads are saying “read Heart of Darkness (again)”, but the inner therapist is saying “lighten up and read Unmarriageable” 😂😂 10mo
LauraBeth Sometimes it‘s one of those sad ones that makes me feel better! 10mo
TrishB Glad you got some books ❤️ 10mo
Graciouswarriorprincess Feel better. I am seeing the author of unmarriageable in Savannah at the Book Festival in a couple of weeks. 10mo
Smrloomis Sorry about the day being crap but hopefully these will make it a bit better! 10mo
readordierachel Hope things are looking up 💕 10mo

Everything about this #PenguinClassicsDeluxeEdition is gorgeous, from the feel of the paper, down to the artwork on the French flaps. I‘ve finally finished the introduction and am ready to start my reread of this gorgeous novel. It‘s been 27 years since I read it last. #LesMisBuddyRead

vivastory I agree 1y
vivastory French flaps, deckled edges. It's perfect! 23 years for me! 1y
Kalalalatja I‘m reading it for the first time! It will be nice to see how people‘s experiences might differ based on wether they have read it before or not 1y

Moray_Reads @vivastory @Kalalalatja oh dear, oh dear. How can I be behind on two classic chunkster reads at the same time?! #LesMisBuddyRead #MyVodkaBromance 1y
Kalalalatja @Moray_Reads don‘t worry, I haven‘t even started yet and I‘m hosting 😄 1y
LaLecture Are you reading the complete book or an abridged version? It was so hard to get an unabridged edition of this one in German. Mine has 1600 pages and I still don‘t dare to start reading it 😅. 1y
DGRachel @LaLecture Unabridged. Not including the endnotes, my copy has 1304 pages. We were assigned the abridged version in high school, but I read an unabridged version for extra credit. During class discussion, I remember answering the teacher‘s question, referring to my copy, and the whole class had this blank look. The details I had weren‘t in the abridged version. That was when I swore I‘d never read an abridged book again. You lose so much. 1y
LaLecture @DGRachel that‘s why I bought an unabridged version. I don‘t like the feeling of only knowing half the story. It‘s so cool that you read such a huge book in school! (What adjective do you use for books with many pages? Big? Huge?) 1y
DGRachel @LaLecture either adjective works! Les Mis was one of my favorite books assigned in school so I‘m really looking forward to this reread. 1y
LaLecture I‘m thinking about joining the buddy read as it would be a great reason to finally start the book. But I‘m pretty sure I wouldn‘t manage to read the book in just one month :/. 1y
DGRachel @LaLecture I think I‘ve only managed to keep up with one buddy read ever. Start the book! Get as far as you can when you can. I think you‘ll be pleasantly surprised by how readable it is and how quickly you get through it, even though it‘s huge. I read the whole thing in a week in high school, it‘s that good. 1y
