Persephone Weekend

This is the first time I have participated in any sort of reading challenge, read along or anything specific to books.  I have been intrigued by the these lovely grey books after having read about them on various blogs. So I thought I would join in and here I am and you can follow what is going on if you visit Verity or Claire’s blog.

I bought my first Persephone book a few weeks ago in preparation of this weekend. The book I chose was The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield Fisher. I have started it and this weekend sees me finishing it (well that’s the idea) and writing about it on this blog and also participating in all the other Persephone fun.

As I had a really bad morning at work and left earlier than I normally leave on a Friday (early finish on Fridays anyway) this has been my saviour for this weekend.

On with reading the book and visiting all the blogs participating! Talk to you all soon.

  1. I came across Persephone books when I read Miss Pettigrew lives for a day.
    A fab cinderella style story from the 30’s.

    Enjoy the challenge
