Persephone Reading Week

Claire reminds me that I made a mistake when I announced Persephone Reading Week on Friday - we actually planned to run it during the first week of May! The good news is that that is even sooner :)

I've just enjoyed reading the second volume of Mollie Panter-Downes stories, Minnie's Room, over the last couple of days, and think that I enjoyed it even more than the wartime stories for its evocation of post-WW2 life and how austerity impacted on the middle classes of Britain. Highly recommended!


  1. What happens during Persephone week? I still have 10 of them in my TBR...

  2. Thomas - we all read and review Persephone books and Claire and I run some giveaways!

    Claire - first week of May!

  3. Have readjusted my calendar so I don't accidentally miss Persephone week.

    I'm glad you enjoyed Minnie's Room. I keep hoping either Persephone or someone else will publish the rest of her war notes.

  4. I am really looking forward to this! I was sorry to miss the one last summer but definitely intend to take part this time around :)

  5. Oh I can't wait. Last year I was on holiday so missed the first Persephone Reading Week. I only have Miss Pettigrew so will have to stock up before May so I can join in.
