Cover Collection: Tess of the D’Urbervilles

1. Penguin Classics // 2. Oxford World’s Classics // 3. Vintage Orange Inheritance

4. Vintage Classics // 5. Pocket Penguin Classics // 6. HarperTeen

These are very interesting covers and I don’t think I have a definite favorite. I’m leaning toward #5, but I also like #2. I’m intrigued by ┬áthe strawberry covers, too, but they don’t quite capture the essence of Tess for me. What cover appeals to you?

My cousin left yesterday afternoon and I did my fair share of crying. She is a wonderful person and it will be hard not being able to see her every day, but she has an exciting opportunity as a nurse in Colorado and I am very happy and excited for her. I have a week off at the end of March and hope to visit her for a few days then and of course there is always Facetime and texting so I will always be in touch with her. Thank you for your comforting words and support!

I am not keeping up with my reading goals very well lately because I have had such a craving for Dorothy Whipple and other Persephone and Virago authors – they are just the best books around and really enrich my life. What is it about these books that speaks to my heart?

And, remember when I told you about my book club? Well, we were supposed to meet Thursday evening, but due to a scheduling mix-up at work I had to cancel at the last minute. We are all dying to discuss State of Wonder so I hope I can reschedule it for sometime soon. What a crazy book!

I wish you all a lovely weekend.
