I had a lovely little grey persephone tote bag, given to me by my work colleagues along with three book tokens to spend. I chose:
Daddy's gone a-hunting by Penelope Mortimer
Cheerful weather for the wedding by Julia Strachey
Round about a pound a week by Maud Pember Reeves
And off I happily trotted home!
I hope I'll receive mine shortly as well, I can't wait ! The short story at the end is always such a treat. I hope I'll receive a new catalogue as well, they're always so beautifully put together. Did you see which painting was on the cover of the Biannually ?
Hee - wonder if I'll get a hysterical phone call from Heaven-Ali like when she was in it and I spotted her name!!
OMG! So excited! Famous now!!!
Edited to say aha found it http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/readers.htm
And the cover is Early 1900s Kitchen c/o Bourneville Trust from Nails, Noggins and Newels: an alternative history of every house
My free bookmark is the one for The Country Housewife's book and it's lovely.
Is this too obsessive??
Marise, this probably isn't the right group for that question! ;)
Christina, 'obsessive' is our middle name!!!
eta: to clarify!
>11 christiguc: Thanks for pointing that out, I feel much better!
The bookmark was Miss Buncle's Book by D. E. Stevenson.
In "From the Blogs" has a snippet from not only lyzzybee but also our danitorres!

Dear Persephone Reader,
This is just to let you know that the new Biannually and Catalogue were sent out last week and if they have not arrived already should do so any day. But there is a post strike in the UK, which means that many letters are being delayed. We are sending books out as usual but, again, there will be delays. A good deal of the material is online on our website."
On a brighter note, I went into the Shop on Thursday - Nicola Beauman was in there so I met her properly and admitted it was I who wrote the review of her book that appeared in the Biennially!! Had a lovely chat with them all in the shop anyway - and got all the Birmingham folks' Christmas Persephones to and from each other - I just have to forget what I'm getting now!!
The post has been very odd from the UK as there are a few items from the Book Depository that have gone astray as well as a Persephone book bag ordered last spring!! Hopefully, the postal strike is cleared soon. We have books to read after all!!!
Hope it comes this week so I can order a couple.
