Persephone Reading Week : Roundup #7

How exciting that we're on roundup #7 of the week, and the posts are coming thick and fast. Do check out Claire's roundup from yesterday too.

First up is a very exciting post from Fleur Fisher - she's very kindly giving away copies of Miss Pettrigrew Lives For the Day and Making Conversation - all you have to do is comment on her post and tell her which Persephone book is calling you the most, so do head over and join in.

Hannah Stoneman recieved her copy of The Persephone BiAnnually, and is planning a Persephone fest for today.

Buried in print continues her Persephone wartime reading.

Claire at Captive Reader was shockingly reading a non-Persephone book...when two of the characters visited the bookshop!

Mrs B at the Literary Stew shares her story of discovering the imprint whilst living in Hong Kong.

Chasing Bawa has reviewed Good evening Mrs Craven, her first Persephone, which she has enjoyed enough to want to seek out its companion, Minnie's Room.

HJ Elliot has reviewed Hetty Dorval on librarything (but beware, it does contain a spoiler!)

Anna from the Green Room was seduced into reading Greenery Street despite the fact that she has no time to read anything other than for her studies! I love it when a book calls so strongly!

Lyn at I prefer reading reviews one of her favourite Persephone books, Little Boy Lost, and lists her top 5 too - do you agree?

Katherine at A girl walks into a bookstore reviews The young pretenders, and also updates us on her current reading here.

Don't forget to check out my competition to win a copy of the DVD of Miss Pettigrew lives for the day - some interesting answers already! And don't forget about the other giveaways on our blogs - closing at the weekend.


  1. You and Claire are doing an amazing job...well done, Verity *cheers and claps!*

  2. I am so impressed by how well this week has been run. Well done ladies.


Do leave a comment - I love to hear from people who read my blog.
