Does anyone know of a US store than retails for Persephone? $23 for a paperback is getting painful. and I'm spoiled, as I'm skeptical that secondhand books will come with the bookmark.

I checked a couple of likely stores, and found that it pretty much depends on the title. Both Women & Children First and Seminary Co-op have some titles. But since these stores are not near you, it might not be much of a savings when you consider shipping costs.

Your best bet may actually be, not a US store, but Book Depository in the UK. While most are in the area of $23, they do have some for less, and they ship free to the US.

And check Indiebound (though, sadly, you cannot search by publisher).

Thanks for the heads up! Great start!

EDIT: Book Depository is quite the find! THANK YOU!

I have bought from a number of sources - including Book Depository and Amazon Market Place. Many second hand ones do not come with book marks and I have had to buy them separately from Persephone itself. When buying second hand I always check that 'Like New' means like new and about 25% of the time the seller cancels the order because the book is not as described. A few years ago a gently read Persephone sold for as little as $2.50 on Amazon but, alas, no longer.

As anyone who is also on the LT Virago group knows I have had horrible luck with Book Depository since they opened their American branch. When the books came from the UK they were great but 4 of the ones from their NY state warehouse have arrived in horrible condition and were only replaced after a lot of fuss. The last one I got looked as if someone had dropped an anvil on it. Plus new Persephones from BD do not come with book marks.

Here's a nice article (though horrid headline!) about Persephone with a little about their 'stateside' venture.

I wonder if there is a way for us to get bulk deal and distribute once in the US. Sort of like a book club.
