Charity shop find! I picked up this old Everyman paperback edition of Mansfield Park from 1963 while browsing Oxfam today. A lot of people don’t like Fanny Price but I find her easy to identify with and really like this novel.

There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later.
Books v. Cigarettes, George Orwell

She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live. She read books as one would breathe ether, to sink in and die.

This lovely Dutch poster from 1950 roughly translates as ‘spend your money wisely, buy books.’ Piet van der Hem is the artist.
