I am blaming Sue over at Our Quiet Life in Suffolk! I’m kidding – I am actually grateful to her (if potentially poorer), this post is because of one of hers from the other week. She wrote about Persephone Books in a post on 29th April.
This should link to her post:
The post mentioned the Biannually magazine that they send out for free (twice a year – obviously!). I ordered my copy and it arrived on Saturday. It is a really interesting little magazine with great content – so far so good. But enclosed with the magazine was, of course, a catalogue. Hardly surprising as the publishing house want to sell their books, the problem is that I now want to buy lots of them. First perusal of the catalogue gives me a shortlist of 24! At a cost of £12 each or 3 for £30 plus £2 post and packing per book, well – that’s a lot of money. The first perusal of the catalogue didn’t give me just a short list, I also have a long list!
So I was delighted to read Sue’s recommendation of Persephone Biannually and to then order and receive my free copy but now can’t stop coveting lots of beautiful new books!
