Persephone Reading Weekend

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!

About carolwallace

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.
