    I do hope you can enjoy Wuthering Heights! You are a brave woman, and you know what you're in for . . . Try as I might, I cannot get through the first chapter! I have an excellent imagination . . . I think you probably know what I mean . . . I've been hearing all about the Penguin Popular Classics . . . they are lovely, aren't they!?
    And finally, I love your decision to buy bookplates for Finley! Being an old fashioned kind of a girl, myself {naturally, or how would I have found you!} I made certain that my children had bookplates for their library as well, but I never imagined your reasoning . . . and I do so love it! My youngest, who is away in graduate school, still adds bookplates to the list when I ask him for the annual birthday gift suggestions. I love to have instilled a love for such things in such a thoroughly modern young man.

  5. Now, that's spooky: I decided that, if I were to buy books at all in the next few months, it would be those green Penguins and the Persephone books. I really fancy the idea of some sort of consistency of size and colour on the bookshelves for a change…!
