I have read a few pages only, but I already love it. I think I would like to get the author's other books as well, as soon as I am done with this.

Kat This is coming up next for me too! I am especially looking forward to it now after seeing 5 stars here :-)

Hi Kathryn! I hope you love it as much as I did. It's one of those books where you savor ever word. Now I can't wait to watch the movie adaptation.

This was such a good read! I am so glad I discovered this author. I found some links to her other books on Project Gutenberg - but thanks so much for the offer! :) I was planning on reading Elizabeth and her German Garden next - what do you think? Have you read it?


Misha  Mathew Kirsty wrote: "That's okay :) Yes, I have, and it's another great read! I'd definitely recommend it."

Great! Thanks, Kirsty.

Cynthia Dunn Which von Arnim books should I start with having never read her?

Oh no, Kirsty, I was writing to both of you. Awesomebooks.com has a bunch of hers for sale inexpensively (used of course) and if you buy two, there's free shipping to the US. Free shipping to the UK even with one book. I started to read a blog that was listed on the Persephone site and now I'm hooked on all these old books. I wish I could buy all of the Persephones, they're so beautiful. You might like the blog. I'll find the name and give it you and Misha. Thanks for this.


Misha  Mathew I have only read this one by Elizabeth Von Arnim, but I can second Kirsty's recommendation. I loved it! The movie is great too!

Now I really do need to check out Awesomebooks. I find it so hard to get Persephone books inexpensively. I want to own them all as well!

Cynthia Dunn It takes about two weeks or so to get here. I bought four more books the other day. They run specials where you get four for the price of three from their Bargain Bin. I got the Von Armin. I've subscribed to Stuck in a Book, Buried in Print and a couple of others. I'll look at the ones you mentioned.


Misha  Mathew @Kirsty I fully intend to try Awesome books when buying books for Christmas.

If you love The Captive Reader, I think you will also like "Stuck in a Book". Reading these blogs are one of my favorite pastimes :D

Oh great! I hope you enjoy the blogs.

They have a bargain bin too? I need to buy something from there soon.
