I originally had three copies of Wuthering Heights: one Vintage edition I bought when I had to read it in my first year of uni, one modern Penguin edition that a friend bought me for my birthday, and this gorgeous classic Penguin that my grandfather bought in a second hand book store. I have since Marie Kondo-ed the first, but I kept the other two as they are both gifts and, to be fair, the letters in this one are a bit small and crammed to make it nice to read. I’ve only read the book once, but would like to read it again sometime as I remember being rather impressed by it.
This bookshelf story was brought to you by a nice HEMA breakfast I treated myself to before going to ‘our’ booth in the university canteen to study. I’m working on the third chapter of my MA dissertation, so I’m researching narrative levels and the use/abuse of conventions of fiction in Paul Auster’s The New York Trilogy today.
‘The Weather Today’ is a challenge I set myself in which every day(ish) I will take a random book from my bookshelves and write a few sentences about it.
