So thrilled to see The Persphone Bianually delivered to my house this week. Above is the No. 10 edition which introduced new books for Autumn/Winter 2011-12: No Surrender by Constance Maud (Book No. 94), Greenbanks by Dorothy Whipple (Book No. 95 which I long for), and Dinners for Beginners by Rachel and Margaret Ryan (Book No. 96). It also had a short story by Mollie Panter-Downes entitled “Susan and Father Christmas”, a short story entitled “Last Laugh” by Dorothy Whipple, an article by Adele Geras on Whipple, and an article by Adam Fergusson on Bath. Near the end of the magazine is a feature called Our Bloggers Write; so pleased to be included in this along with fellow blogging friends such as A Book Sanctuary, Col Reads and Coffee and a Book Chick.
I also want to bring to your attention the Persephone Secret Santa 2011 which is being hosted again this year by Claire of Paperback Reader and Verity. You have until November 6 (um, that would be tomorrow) to email Claire of your intention to join should you decide to do so. Details can be found on her post here.
If you do join in? It just might be one of your favorite bookish parts of the season…
