Justine is asking for thoughts on Virago books, what they have meant to you and the old versus the new Virago covers over on her blog for a piece for The Sunday Telegraph magazine, so hotfoot over there if you want to have your say. I've waxed lyrical off the top of my head over the original Elizabeth Taylor covers but am going off to do some evidence-based research on my shelves before I condemn the more recent covers out of hand. It might still not be good though.
Meanwhile I've fortuitously had to whizz The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte to the top of the reading pile. I'm reading it for a reason and thought I had six weeks from early April before commenting, now I read the email properly and my comments are required BY early April.
It's a good thing that my recent read of Daphne has plunged me into du Mauriermania, Foweymania, Brontemania and all things Haworth because now I can't wait to get started, and even better and talking of old versus revamped covers, I have been sent the new Oxford World's Classics edition to read and it's a cracker.
