This is not a photo of Cecil Beaton. It is a photo of the author, Hugo Vickers, who has written several books about Cecil Beaton.

Thank you for the most excellent SantaThing choices. I am truly delighted with all three books. Merry Christmas, indeed!

Dear Christina,
I am beaming that you are pleased with your books. Read them in good health and brighter days.
When you aren't active in the group, we miss you, so I don't know whether you're aware that several of us have been on a Hocking kick since All Virago/All August. Why the woman isn't a household name, I really can't say.
Travel safely to Ca and Home. I hope the trip contributes to healing for all of you.
Merry Christmas!
Peggy
Thanks so much, Christina! -- Jane
Thanks Christina!
Thank you!

This photo is on the back of "The Flamenco Academy" book, which I promise not to look at the author until I'm done reading and I remember thinking when I finished reading "My God! I hope I look like her when I'm older" :) Because she is really a beautiful lady and writes very beautifully when she wants to!
Hi, Christina,

I'm in for the Virago Secret Santa--wouldn't miss it, even though I haven't been around much lately. Address is still the same.

Thanks!
Deborah
Hi Christina
I would like to sign up again for VSS - address is the same as last year.

Are you collecting Mrs Bradley mysteries?
I have started to read through her series and am reading Come Away Death presently with St Peter's Finger next to go.

Thanks to you and Laura for organising the VSS again this year.
regards
Patricia
Hi Christina - Me three! I definitely want to participate! My info is the same, let me know if you need any other info. Thanks, Lisa
Christina -- thanks for doing this. I'm definitely in. None of my info has changed, so I think you have all you need. If not, let me know.
Ooh yes please...Christmas isn't Christmas without Virago Secret Santa....

Hi Christina. Sorry for the delay in replying - really pleased to hear A Glass of Blessings arrived safely. I hope you enjoy it :-)

Heather
Awesome! Thank you for letting me know that they arrived safely.
Have a great week. Take care of those kids and take care of yourself.
hugs,
Good Saturday to you Christina. I do hope you enjoy a relaxing and fun weekend.
Am just wondering if your books arrived. The Postmistress assured me that if I sent them priority they should have been there on Monday, last. I do hope they made it.
Take care of you,
belva

This is not the author Sir Horace Rumbold, 8th Baronet (1829–1913), but his son Sir Horace Rumbold, 9th Baronet (1869-1941)
Briliant, thanks!

I love an excuse to shop for Viragos!!
Hoorah! Hoorah! I can hear the sleigh bells already ;)
Thank you. Am so excited!~!
That's great, thanks!
Hi Christina,

Dear Christina,
Thank you so much for your HTML tutorial. I just came across it when I was reading the Virago posts. That stuff is positively mysterious for me and I appreciate your effort to help the computer illiterate such as me! It's invaluable for me.

Thank you! Mary Ellen

I did put one of the pics up on Joan Clark's page once I realized who it was. However, leaving it here on the Carolyn Keene page (2 versions of the photo) makes no sense. I agree that both photos belong on her author page.

Since Christiguc has done her utmost to get permission and sended an e-mail, why note replace this picture to Joan Clark's page: http:/www.http://www.librarything.com/author/clarkjoan-2. I think that would be more reasonable in stead of just removing

My guess? It is properly on Joan Clark's page. Because "Joan Clark" is also one of Mildred Wirt's pseudonyms, along with "Carolyn Keene", somewhere amidst some combining/aliasing, it ended up on Keene's page as well.

this is author Joan Clark. I am not sure why it was put on Carolyn Keene as the author is not one of those who wrote under this pseudonym. I believe it was an error.

Got it...thanks!
Dear Christina,

I just mailed Not So Quiet today. I've been down with something called the novovirus which makes you have an intimate relationship with your toilet so couldn't get the book off to you sooner. Again, because I've lived in the Southwest and know that once books cross the Great Plaines they disappear for weeks, I stuck delivery confirmation on it. Here is the number:

0309 3220 0001 5372 1938

Hopefully, you'll get it by Christmas!

Elaine
Hello, Christina - I'll go read about Secret Santa and see if I want to spread my wealth there. Thanks for the invite. -Mary
If I remember correctly, Family Money took like two months to get from Chicago to Texas because it was rustled by bad guys in Kansas. Therefore, I have sent Ice House with delivery confirmation so we know at what point the book will disappear into the black hole of the Great Plains. Here is the number:

0309 3220 0001 5371 9065

(Actually, I think that media mail gets there faster with delivery confirmation. The post office doesn't want a record of a package sitting on a shelf for a month).

elaine
Hi, Christina,

Thanks for reminding me about the Virago Secret Santa. I'd love to participate again. You have my address, right?

Deborah
Of course! I have your address and will send out Ice House maybe even tomorrow. I have a few PBS books that have to be mailed. The Ice House I really enjoyed, whereas I have been luke-warm about the other Bawden's I have read.
Scratch that last message!!!!!!! For some reason, my PM's were reversed, and your pm from 2009 about Family Money (the very first I got when I joined the board) was listed at the top! So I did send you Family Money!

The offer for Ice House still holds....

Elaine
ps. The HelpWiki that I used is accessible from the 'Help' icon on any Talk Topic page, not the main Talk (Your World, etc) pages.
Hi Cristina

First of all, thanks for that wonderful series of HTML hints that you provided last year on the Virago Modern Classics group. I have been pointing people to them ever since I first found out about them.

Lately though, people have been asking why I'm pointing them to a group that is unrelated to HTML and complaining that they and others could not be expected to find it by themselves.

I thought that was a fair cop, so I have taken the liberty of re-producing your tutorial as a section of WikiHelp. It can be found by clicking on the 'Help' icon at the top of every Talk page. I have also taken the liberty of updating some things (like the procedures for Flickr which have changed since you wrote your pieces.)

Thanks again for such a wonderful resource.

Good morning Miss Christina;
Hope things are all smiles and sunshine in your part of the world this morning. We have sun and I'm smiling so I guess my part of the world is good. The grandson has a football game tonight. The nearby and constant rival of a town 10 miles down the road and he has a lot of friends that live and play sports there so it should be very interesting. He will be playing opposite his best friend. Tyler (granson)and Papa even attend their high school home games and he hangs with his rivals all night. Pretty funny to watch these tweeners become teeners (as long as they aren't mine). LOL!~!
Regarding "Home"; I have to go back to all the books that I read throughout Roger's illness and drift though them and take the time to assimilate what I read and seriously rate them, for myself as well as L.T. While he was ill, I basically did no reviews, discussing of books on L.T. (except perhaps a little on the V/G) and threw up any ratings that I took time to give. But now things are more back to normal. I did love "Home". I especially loved her "Gilead" and I liked "Housekeeping" the least of the three. We just did that one for my R/L book club which we hold at my favorite little independent book shop about 45 miles from here. That was a very good evening of discussion. October's book is " The Lace Reader" which I have seen bandied about here on L.T. but don't really know much about it but what the cover and insert says but it looks interesting.
At any "rate" (ar, ar), I do need to go back at least to April or May and give my reads a going over. So I'll see what that 4 stars become at that time. I think I rated Gilead a 5 and Housekeeping a 3 1/2. (can't remember & too lazy right now to go see).
Thanks for popping my Christina and I will indeed see you on the Virago Group where I am taking my coffee and now heading. Love coffee and quiet with Cate in the mornings.
hugs,
belva

My goodness, who thought covers could be so complicated?! Thanks for the work-around !
Christina, thank you so much ... that's VERY helpful!
If I recall correctly, there is a ceramics/pottery factory that owns the rights to Clarice Cliff's designs and does reproductions. I didn't investigate thoroughly at the time I was looking. As I recall, the only pictures featured on the website were my least favorite of her designs . . . which is not to say others are not available. So . . . if you can bring yourself to enjoy a humble reproduction, I think you may be able to find one.

Mary.
I see you have recently added several books on Clarice Cliff. I adore her work, especially the early pieces. And to think that as recently as 20 years ago, her work was still affordable if one weren't a student. Now, collecting her work is a hobby for the wealthy. Ah well. So I will never in this lifetime own a piece of work by Clarice Cliff, but I can still dream. And who knows . . . perhaps I have some hitherto unknown and wealthy uncle, who will die leaving his ill-gotten and filthy lucre to me. Then Clarice Cliff, here I come!
Thanks for checking out your copy of Wonderful Sphinx, Christina. Guess mine's a bumper crop!

Yes, Cutting for Stone is by far, the best book I've read this year. Completely overwhelmed
with the twins' story, I wept in the end. Took me awhile to even think of my next read!

Hope you're having a swell summer!

Hi Christina!

Question about a book we share - 'Wonderful Sphinx', The Biography of Ada Leverson - a hardcover
published by Virago in 1993.

Leverson has been in my 'radar' so to speak with the Bloomsbury reissue and the really
lovely Dodo press editions. With All August/All Virago upon us, I've pulled The Little Ottleys
to add to my monthly reading.

So, back to the question at hand. This morning, I pull the Wonderful Sphinx from my shelf to have a look see, and what
is missing? Well, it seems there is a full list of illustrations printed on page xiii but NO ILLUSTRATIONS ANYWHERE!!

Can you tell me if your edition is the same? If so, that's a big whoops on both the author's AND virago!!

Thanks much,
Cate

I'm checking with mrspenny too. Seems that we're the ONLY 3 who own that book!

I was happy to see one of my photos of Third Place Books put to good use. You have also inspired me to help more on Library Thing - I never knew there were so many ways to help. (And you have quite an interesting library.)
I am so glad you liked Crampton Hodnet. It is my favorite Pym novel.
not particular about location
just put that on and it will appear ? and fellow LTers will get to see ?
once I get location where does it go?
hi Christi.
I don't want to do anything wrong with posting a pic for the first time . first get the link and copy link? I would like for you to tell me step by step to ensure that it went through well.
