Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray published by the @foliosociety

Vanity Fair is one of those really big novels that I was intimidated by for years but loved so much when I finally felt brave enough to tackle it. Other examples include Anna Karenina and Middlemarch - all three of them are novels I really treasure!

Are you ever intimidated by big books? What big books have you conquered and enjoyed?

Have you ever had a close look at the spine of your Folio books? Most of our books have their pages sewn in 16-page segments, which makes sure the pages are firmly in place!
Our larger editions also have something similar to an Oxford Hollow - there is a gap between the sewn pages and the spine of the book. This little feature allows the book to stay open more easily, and ensures that the curved spine of the book doesn't start to be pulled out of place. (Featured edition is Ulysses by James Joyce, available at foliosociety.com)

Second Sunday of Advent and our living room is starting to look more like a home again. Found a foliocopy of Barchester Towers for only £3 from a little bookshop in Lincoln and bought this Wrendale bauble from the Xmas market ❤️🌲🎅🏼 #homesweethome #diyhomedecor #feelingfestive #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerm #foliosociety #cosyfeels #barchestertowers

Some @foliosociety love for this #shelfiesunday. They make some of my very favorite editions. ♥️

How many editions of the same book is considered too many? I hereby welcome my fourth edition of Tolkien's Silmarillion, the gorgeous 1997 Folio Society edition. All the books pictured are second-hand, and the French one actually belongs to my grandfather but I have borrowed it for obvious research purposes. 📚
(Let's not even talk about the number of Hobbit editions I have… I'll keep them for a future post.)
.
A partir de quel chiffre considère-t-on qu'on possède trop d'éditions d'un même livre? Je souhaite ici la bienvenue à ma quatrième édition du Silmarillion de Tolkien, la superbe version publiée par la Folio Society en 1997. Tous ces livres sont de seconde main, et la traduction appartient en fait à mon grand-père, mais je lui ai emprunté pour mes recherches. 📚
(N'évoquons même pas les multiples éditions du Hobbit que je possède… Je leur consacrerai un futur post.)

Bar some last-minute flowers and berries etc. the flat is officially decorated for Christmas. Is 25 candles enough, or should I add some more? 🤔 The two handmade decorations at the front of the tree (snowman and star) are looking a bit the worse for wear, but as I made them in nursery many years ago when I was four I really can’t complain - Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them! #christmas #christmastree #candles #firepretty #handmadedecorations #fairylights #christmasbooks #foliosociety
