We’ve done our New York Review Books. We’ve done our Viragos. What’s left for book bloggers eager for artfully packaged paperback editions of mostly-forgotten writers? (Arguably the wonderful Melville House Classic Novella series — maybe a good idea for a summer blogging challenge?)
Persephones, of course! Claire and Verity are organizing a Persephone Reading Weekend. Clever, I think, to limit us to a weekend. Surely we can all get through one of these lovely books, even if we linger on the beautiful jacket art and the endpapers. Let the reading begin!
