Folio Society Books

I love Folio Society Books, I used to be in the Folio Society (a glorified book club) so I have quite a lot of their editions, but I’ve also managed to buy quite a few at secondhand bookshops at reasonable prices. Sometimes they are priced beyond what I would pay for them but other times they are super cheap – too cheap really, it feels akin to theft, especially when it’s a charity shop. All you can do is pay the price and say – keep the change!

When I saw these ones last week I just had to buy them, despite the fact that I already had 3 of them in cheap paperback editions.

My Life and Times by Jerome K Jerome. I’ve read a few of Jerome’s humorous books and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this one.

Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck. I loved this one when I read it a few years ago.

The Zimmermann Telegram by Barbara Tuchman. I haven’t read this one but Jack has.

Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I read this one as a teenager, I should probably re-read it.

  1. They are handsome books. I was in the Folio Society, too, many years ago. The problem with them is that they’re so beautiful that I can’t read them and get rid of them, which is my usual policy.

    • Joan,
      That is a problem, but I’m not good at getting rid of books nowadays anyway. I leave them in a bag for a while then a fair few of them find their way back on shelves!
