Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor

Well, now I’m worried.  People are deciding to read Mrs. Palfrey (hurray!),
(please see my post–Book Review: Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont 03/03/2013),but
I’m afraid they’ll be influenced by the copies that are available to buy.  The ones
on Amazon have very noticeable covers (with people!) and I don’t want you to be influenced before you’ve even read the book.  I hate that, don’t you?

Maybe your library will have a nice old copy like I have, which I bought used
on the internet.  See? no graphic photos to give me unwanted insights into
the plot.  I can do the visualizing very nicely all by myself, thank you.
In fact, those photos don’t agree with my idea of Mrs. Palfrey at all.

If you must, go ahead and buy one of the new ones, but cover it over right
away, won’t you?  And, heaven forbid, don’t watch the video!


You already know me---I'm in your book club. I've been in your book club in Wisconsin, in New York, in Missouri, in Connecticut. Now I'm in your book club in Pennsylvania. I love books! (I also collect buttons!) I'm looking forward to having conversations about books with people just like you----who also love books and want to talk about them. Send me an email: booksandbooks (at) me about a book you are reading. (or buttons of interest)

    hmmm . . . hmmm … and, hmmm … there’s a clue there somewhere . . . where is Nancy Drew?! Or, Jessica! Nothing like a good mystery on a rainy grey day. Can’t wait to read what this all means! “unwanted insights into the plot” indeed!!
