Since we’re almost halfway through the reading year, what could be better than a celebratory readathon?! I’m happy to announce that the Persephone Readathon is back for a third round.
Whether this will be your first Persephone book* or your one hundredth, I hope you’ll join me for ten days of reading, reviewing, chatting, and celebrating all things Persephone.
The Persephone Readathon #3 will run from Friday, May 31st through Sunday, June 9th, 2019.
As before, 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.**
More info can be found on my Persephone Readathons Page
*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 132 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 132 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 (Now updated)
-Be sure to share your readathon experience and follow along with #PersephoneReadathon on all social media!
-If you’re interested in submitting a guest post (including reviews) or hosting a giveaway for the readathon, I’d love to hear from you! You can email me at: dwellinpossibilityblog at gmail dot com.
Stay tuned for a sign-up page a little closer to the event…
I hope you’re as excited as I am to spend ten days celebrating lovely Persephone Books!
