Thanks for stopping by, meligrosa, and for the kind comments. I'm also so impressed by single-topic blogs. I'm more a rambler, in case people haven't noticed. :-)

wow intense +beautiful, really nice to see blogs focused on a single topic, thx to you +karyn for the intro +keep the interviews coming, xxom


Thanks Jo and Pam, and Lisa - Penguin in the US published their own series of books from 1942-1947 (when they had difficulty importing them during the war), which have very distinctive covers and slightly different logos. We rarely see them here in Australia, but I imagine there must be copies hiding on the shelves of secondhand bookshops over there.


P.S.: To both you ladies, your blogs are addictive! Would either or both of you consent to an interview?


Jo, Lucky you to come across Penguins! I look at all used book stores and the chain store Half Price Books and nothing... My daughter is hoping to spend a college semester abroad and when she does I will both have to visit her and go give her a list of wants!


Jo, interviewing Karyn led me to contact one of the bookshops I found on her blog to ask how much shipping is to the U.S. because they're not to be found here. At least I haven't found them! Another addict in the making...


A lovely interview and great to learn more about Karen and her wonderful blog. Whenever I see a Penguin I always think I wonder if you have it or read it.

A great interview with Karyn. You picked a wonderful blog to represent with your interviewing. Karyn's work is always great and her collection astounding. Great work both of you. Pam
