So far nothing this good in my in-tray, but the day's early over here, so I'll be optimistic. I plan on ordering that MPD book of stories--I'm just trying to decide what else to get from Persephone. I'm reading her first novel, The Shoreless Sea and enjoying it greatly. It's very different than One Fine Day, but it was written in 1924 when she was only 17. The Bishop book sounds really good as well. I'll have to write it down and keep an eye out for it.

Good Evening, Mrs Craven: The Wartime Stories of Mollie Panter-Downes is in my in-box too! I bought it yesterday - such a beautiful cover and I love "One Fine Day"!

I'm reading Good Evening, Mrs Craven at the moment and having to be careful about where I do so. She often has me snorting with laughter...

I wasn't at work on Friday. When I arrived there today i had TWO jiffy envelopes addressed to me c/o work. no prizes for guessing the contents.
I wish you hadn't shown us the new Lloyd Jones book - i might have to get it.

I'm very intrigued by The Camel Bookmobile. Will have to see if it's been published here. For some reason, the description reminds me of a children's book called Wild About Books, about a library within a zoo.

Serendipity! I was casting about for a third book to buy from Persephone to make up my trio for £30 or whatever it is, and lo and behold, Molly P-D appears on the blog. She will be the one. And to Danielle, may I recommend anything by Dorothy Whipple, esp the one I've read most recently SOMEONE AT A DISTANCE which is really fine.
Just finished number 8 of Dance to the Music of Time too...completely marvellous! Do tell us of your progress in the Dance, Cornflower!

Just curious--I ordered the MPD and Dorothy Whipple editions that Persephone just put out...do they include bookmarks as well? I know I won't get one for them as I ordered from The Book Depository (free shipping!), but I was just curious.
