Today's pictures/My new books


Ever since I began reading blogs, and writing my own, I've been seeing these covers and titles. My interest has grown exponentially until my longing heart could no longer refuse. I ordered these three from Persephone Books on January 8th, and today they arrived. The books themselves are perfect, and they also include these bookmarks which match the inner covers, and the little plate about Greenery Street. My happiness is boundless, and I thank each and every one of the myriad bloggers who introduced me to these wonderful books.

  1. Persephone books are wonderful. So glad you decided to invest in some titles for yourself.

    I am sure you will love Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day -- it is quite simply a lovely lovely story!

    PS> Did the book I send you arrive safely?

  3. Miss P. is the first one I'm going to read; and I've emailed you about the book.

    Les, I'm just thrilled.

  4. Welcome to the wonderful world of Persephone, Nan. Such gorgeous books and I love getting their catalogue and bi-annual magazine too. Miss Pettigrew is a delightful book but I don't know the others. Look forward to hearing about those in due course.

  6. I'm not sure if this is completely applicable, but FYI: PBS is having the whole Jane Austin series aired this month and February on Sunday evenings. Last night my husband and I saw the first one, Persuasion, which was excellent. (My connection here is women writers from days gone by.)

    Your three new books look so inviting.

  8. The books are lovely. They look like they will fit into your life perfectly and snugly.

    I recorded Persuasion last night and will watch it later. I'm excited about it.

  9. How did you decide which ones to buy, Nan!? But you have chosen well - Miss P and Greenery Street are both lovely, lovely books. Haven't read A House in the Country but have heard a lot good about it, it's moving up my tbr pile. Hope - well, know - you will enjoy them!

  10. I went to Persephone and bought three myself, spurred on by you and Becca. I ordered Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Home-Maker, and Fidelity (because for some strange reason, Madame Bovary always sticks with me as a good book). I absolutely can't wait until the arrival, and I'm afraid I'm addicted to yet one more book source.

  11. Thank you, Nan! Well, I thank you. My dear husband, however, may not. :) Off to make a list!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
