I just received an email from Persephone Books. For those of you unfamiliar with this particular UK press, they reprint neglected classics of 20th century authors (most of whom are women). I love them, for the record.

But I digress …

In honor of Valentine’s Day they are offering free gift wrap and a sweet little message. Simply order a book online before midnight Tuesday, February 9th (keep in mind the time difference); Do NOT click the gift-wrapping option, but write in “Valetine’s Day Offer” in the box for Additional Information. Order a book for your sweetheart, or one for yourself!

They suggest the following books:

No. 35 Greenery Street


No. 21 Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

No. 29 The Making of a Marchioness

No. 81 Miss Buncles Book

No. 62 How to Run your Home without Help
