Mini-Persephone Readathon Choices: Which one to pick for the weekend?


I happen to love the idea of readathons! I have a very bad track record, though, at following through with them. I’m HOPING I can break that curse this weekend. Here are my choices for the Mini-Persephone Books Readathon running from today until midnight Sunday/Monday at Dwell In Possibility. Persephone Books are mostly by women writers and are republished to preserve them and to get them into the hands of a new generation of readers. I love the idea, love the covers, artwork, and endpapers. In fact, their shop is on my bucket list for a future, longed-for return to London.

My Choices

Persephone covers are usually plain now, so I’m showing some older ones and some previous editions.



Peresphone Books I’ve already read

  1. I just am loving all these covers! I often enjoy looking at book covers more than I enjoy digging in — is that wrong? Ha 🙂 Whatever you choose, wishing you a wonderful weekend of reading!


  2. I wonder what you read, coming to this late! I read How to Run Your House Without Help (in fact my husband bought it for me, but I think it was more he said he’s buy one for me and I chose it). I did start to have a System for a few … days. I’ve been labouring with a Horrible Cold or I’d have done this – don’t want to sneeze on my precious Persephones!

  3. You couldn’t have gone wrong with any of these choices, but I’m glad you picked Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day! It was the first Persephone book I read so it has a special place in my heart. It’s just such a gem!
