Announcing the Mini Persephone Readathon!

After the thoroughly enjoyable #PeresephoneReadathon in February, I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be hosting a weekend-long Persephone Readathon this June.

The Mini Persephone Readathon will run from Friday, June 1st to Sunday, June 3rd, 2018. 

I hope you’ll join me for a weekend of Persephone reading!*

This will be a laid back readathon; read as much or as little as you’d like. The goal is simply to enjoy reading and discussing all things Persephone Books.**

If you’re interested in submitting a guest post (including reviews) for the readathon, I’d love to hear from you! You can email me at: dwellinpossibilityblog at gmail dot com.

*What are Persephone Books you may ask? Persephone Books are a London based independent publisher and bookseller, who specialize in neglected books by (mostly) women writers from (mainly) the mid-twentieth century. You can view their website here, and read more about them here and here.

**At this time, Persephone has published 128 books (Full list here). Many of these titles can also be found from other publishers, and some books are even in the public domain and available for free download. You do not have to only read editions published by Persephone. Any edition of these 128 titles counts for this readathon. I know Persephone books can be expensive and difficult to track down, especially outside of the UK. Here in the US, I’ve had good luck with Abebooks for great prices on secondhand copies, and Book Depository for free shipping. Don’t forget to check your local library too!

(Here is a list of Persephone titles available as eBooks, including several in the Public Domain that you can download for FREE)

Be sure to share your readathon experience and follow along with #PersephoneReadathon!

More info (including all the links to the February readathon posts) can be found on my Persephone Readathons Page

  1. I’m in! I have several unread Persephones, but I’ll probably read Heat Lightning by Helen Hull, which is also on my TBR Pile Challenge list for 2018.
