Reminding all readers (of books, not blogs) that Read a Persephone Book Week — sponsored by bloggers Paperback Reader and The B Files (Baking & Bibliophilia) — starts tomorrow. In case you've forgotten the plan, the two will be spending the coming week exclusively reading books from the estimable English publisher, Persephone Books. I discovered Persephone in early 2008 and have sung their praises ever since in both print and cyberspace (check out my categories list).
Since I easily have a week's worth of Persephone titles on my shelf, this challenge may be the impetus I need to finish the half-read ones and get started on the unread ones, like "Greenery Street."
And maybe, like Roses Over A Cottage Door, I'll even dress in gray (above). I'm sure I have a t-shirt like hers somewhere in the back of the closet. Thus, suitably attired, I can curl up on my gray-damask-covered couch, surrounded by my piles of gray-covered books, and hope for gray skies so I'm not tempted to put down my book and pick up my trowel.
