Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Charming Reads Challenges 2018

Longer days mean more daylight for reading outside. Why complete a Charming Reads Challenge in the process? You will have three months to complete one (or more) of three challenges this summer. How do they work?

For each challenge, you’ll be given five books to complete. Read three of them and post 2+ times in the appropriate discussion thread to complete that challenge and earn this beautiful stamp:

Participating in the challenge can also help earn you our book club stamps, which is always a bonus!

Track your progress in this thread using the form below:

Code:
<center>[b]CHALLENGE NAME[/b]</center>
[b]Book 1:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 2:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 3:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 4:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:
[b]Book 5:[/b] [i]Started[/i]: /[i]Finished[/i]:

Finally, everyone who completes a challenge will get one raffle entry per. You’ll also get an extra one for completing all five books in one challenge like the lean, mean, reading machine you are!

What are the challenges, you ask?

is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?

I was able to get all of these free off of iBooks so am going to start off with these! If I can convince J to bankroll getting me some books, I'll order the other ten off Amazon if I can't find them on iBooks. #notmymoney
