The Persephone Readathon Round 2* will take place from Friday, September 21st through Sunday, September 30th.
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.**
Make sure to follow along and share on social media using #PersephoneReadathon throughout the event.
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.
*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!
And here’s a list of Persephone Books available as eBooks, including several that are FREE in the Public Domain
