The Virago Collection Expands

Here are some Viragos I've added to my collection lately, through the used bookstore, mooches, and swaps.

I don't know much about any of these. Until I received Rumour of Heaven by Beatrix Lehmann, I did not connect the fact that she is Rosamond Lehmann's sister.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love the covers on these editions. Here are two of my favorites from this stack.

My Mother-in-law left Three Cups of Tea for us when she was here last week. She really enjoyed this book.

I have another stack here from Bookcloseouts which is so large I am embarrassed to show it. I would like to share one book in particular, Markham Thorpe, that I received from them. Karen reviewed this book a few weeks ago. It just sounds exactly like something I would enjoy. When it arrived I was pleased to discover that it will also come in handy as a decoration. You see, it matches my sofa perfectly.

Do show your other stack! :) Lucky you to find those great Viragos. I have had no luck lately, but I suppose I need to work on the stack I already have! Now I am going to have to find the Thorpe book, too.

Your Virago collection sounds amazing, and Markham Thorpe is the perfect interior decor accessory!

Yes, I want to see the other stack too :)
I found that Beatrix Lehmann book a few weeks ago too. Just visited Karen's blog too and I'm definitely adding that book to my list.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Doesn't Markham Thorpe sound great? The other book Karen describes in that post interests me as well.

As you see, I have shared the rest of the stack(s).
