I’m participating in the Dwell in Possibility Winter 2020 Mini Persephone Readathon this weekend. I’m be reading Mariana by Monica Dickens.
This post is for a few of the optional challenges
Photogenic Persephones: Share a photo of your Persephone collection and/or your readathon TBR stack.
My collection minus my current read
In Six Words: Describe your current Persephone read in 6 words.
education, coming of age (yes, I’m counting that as one word!), bildungsroman, witty, charming, nostalgic
Beautiful Endpapers: Post a photo of your current book’s endpapers/your favorite Persephone endpapers.
Some info about the endpaper for Mariana:
A Cup of Persephone: Post a pic of your Persephone read paired with a mug or cup of something delicious.
Mariana and tea (the tea got cut out of the shot a little, but I think it still counts!)
Quote This: Share a quote from your current read:
“But Mariana was wrong. You couldn’t die. You had to go on. When you were born, you were given a trust of individuality that you were bound to preserve. It was precious. The things that happened in your life, however closely connected with other people, developed and strengthened that individuality. You became a person.”
