Today is the first day of Persephone Reading week - thank you for joining in with us! It's not too late to start - in fact, you can start at any point during the week - and help us enjoy the output of the Persephone imprint.
The challenge is to read, and post about at least one title published by Persephone this week. The hard-core version of the challenge, which Claire and I are both attempting, is to read a Persephone title each weekday this week. Please feel free post links to anything Persephone-related that you blog about this week in the comments section of this post, or over on Claire's blog. You can use the banner at the top of the page (designed by Claire) if you like. At the end of the week we'll have a round-up of all of the Persephone reading. Each day, we will make a draw from all of the names posting a link to a Persephone post or a comment on either Claire or my blog, to win a copy of Good Evening Mrs Craven - the draw will be made based on comments/posts posted up until midnight, and will be announced the following day. There will be an additional prize (announced in the week beginning 7th September) for the best (entirely subjective and down to the opinion of the judges) Persephone related post that we see during the week.
Both Claire and I will be hosting competitions (look out for their launch later today), and some other non-review blog posts. I haven't yet decided which books I'll be reading, but plan to pull them out almost at random from my TBR pile of Persephone books...watch this space!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
