I loved the above post on Anni Cardi’s blog, which links you to a charity Doedemee selling posters of redesigned book covers to help raise money to fight illiteracy.
Guess where I’m shopping this month! I think I’ll probably get the Wuthering Heights design for myself, because it’s completely gorgeous AND one of my favourite books.
The posters for Alice’ Adventures in Wonderland, Anna Karenina, Wind in the Willows, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, To Kill a Mockingbird, Atonement and Northern Lights are also amazing. I might ask for some for my birthday/Christmas.
I decided to treat myself last night. The perfect accompaniment to a good book; this weekend Maggie O’Farrell’s The Hand That First Held Mine. I get mine in Waitrose, not Laduree sadly, though they are still ridiculously expensive. The good thing about them as a weekend snack is that my boyfriend will only steal one, at most two, as he gets upset that his hands are too big and they always seem to crack no matter how gently he picks them up.
I viewed a house today (loved it, she had excellent bookshelves) so am really going to have to cut back on the spending. Maybe I can try making my own macarons and sell them to buy the house. If I go down the Laduree price plan I’d probably only have to sell… five… to get a deposit.
