With less than a month to go, it is time to formally announced Persephone Reading Weekend which Paperback Reader Claire and myself will be running at the end of February. We have run two very successful Persephone Reading Weeks (May 2010 and September 2009) and will be running the weekend in the same style.
The week started out in 2009 when I decided to spend a week off work reading a Persephone book a day; it was so much fun that I decided to do it again on my next week off, and Claire joined me and helped me to make it into a proper bloggy event.
There aren't any rules; to participate all you need to do is to read a Persephone book. You can read more if you like, and hopefully if you have a blog you'll blog about your reading too. If you don't, then Claire or I can put posts up on our blogs. Each day we'll round up the Persephone posts (you'll be able to post links in the comments of our blogs) so that everyone can share in the Persephone fun.
I'm not sure what I'll be reading this time; in the last Reading Week I managed to complete my reading of the entire Persephone collection, but I have recently started re-reading some of my favourites.
We hope to have a couple of giveaways too and think that the weekend should be really fun! No need to sign up, just get your Persephone books ready...
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.
