Persephone Secret Santa - Revealed!!

First of all, thanks so much to Stacy of Book Psmith for organizing this great swap!

The idea behind Persephone Secret Santa was for bloggers to send and receive books from the Persephone Books line:
Persephone Books reprints neglected classics by C20th (mostly women) writers. Each one in our collection of 86 books is intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written, and most are ideal presents or a good choice for reading groups.

My package came on Friday from Nadia of A Bookish Way of Life; go check out her blog if you haven't! Her package included a cute card, a sweet frame and an adorable pin (perfect because I collect Christmas pins!) and the book Good Evening Mrs. Craven: The Wartime Stories of Mollie Panter-Downes, by Mollie Panter-Downes. This is a collection of short stories about the experience of World War 2 in Great Britain. I think it will be a perfect addition to my library! (As you can see, my cat Sasha had to get in on the photo.)

If you'd like to see what I sent to Dolce Bellezza, you can check it out here! (Stick around to check out her gorgeous blog while you're at it!)

Is this a great swap, or what? You can see more Persephone swappers here. Thank you so much Stacy for your work organizing it!
