“Page after page she read
She cried and laughed
She swore and cheered
She fell in love with simple characters
She loathed imaginary enemies
She read and read saying one more chapter
She fell asleep with the books in her grasp
She got lost in the words and escaped the world”
Only a book lover would get as excited over this book gift as much as if it were a new car or a jewel-laden bracelet...
Today Shelbi @thenobbylife gave me a birthday gift that has been one of the best book surprises that I’ve ever received. Somehow I missed that @chilternpublishing had released their newest editions for 2019, but Shelbi did not. Guessing that I had not seen them yet (because I hadn’t texted her with emojis of delight about the choices and covers) she ordered this beautiful edition of Emma. Is it crazy how much I love this gift? Both the book itself and the delight Shelbi had in totally surprising me with it, brought so much joy. Thank you, Shelbi, for an unforgettable birthday gift! 💕
Yesterday I’ve adopted new titles from beloved Chiltern Publishing . They’ve added Little Prince on their list of the world’s finest classic literature🥰❤️.. all with recognisable unique cover design with sparkly gold edged pages.
Today I’m choosing women writers from my old collection and beloved Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
What is your favourite classic by female author ?
¿Té, alguien? No todos los años saco tiempo para tomarlo en las Pump Rooms donde #JaneAusten venía a tomar el preceptivo vaso de agua mineral, pero cuando puedo disfruto cada bocado y cada sorbo. #EPVAusten. -- #Tea at the #PumpRooms, #Bath.
