I was having a wander around in the ManyBooks site the other night and I came across Kate Douglas Wiggin. As you can see I have a lovely copy of her book Penelope’s Experiences in Scotland which I think is sometimes known as Penelope’s Progress, if you’re interested in reading it you can download it from here. It begins a bit strangely but it’s not long before they reach Edinburgh and the Scottish experiences and history.
I also have a matching copy of Penelope’s Experiences in England, I read them ages ago but seem to remember enjoying them. At the time I didn’t realise that Wiggin also wrote Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
I have to admit that I bought my books purely because they’re so gorgeous in green binding with rose and thistle gold decoration and gold edged pages, all very art nouveau, I would still have bought them even if I had had a Kindle then. I just can’t say no to lovely books.
