Lost Books from the Early 20th Century
I recently clicked on a link in an issue of Shelf Awareness and found out about this program from Bloomsbury Publishing. They have started publishing a series of "lost" novels from the early twentieth century based on recommendations from people like literary bloggers, authors, librarians and other bookish people. I think it sounds like a great way to revive treasures that have fallen out of print. Every single one sounds intriguing and I have added them to my "must buy" list. After all, how you can resist a book entitled "THE BRONTES WENT TO WOOLWORTHS?"
