This is a pure classic I have yet to read – but forgive me, I have started over the weekend just gone. It’s so beautifully written and I’m really enjoying it…. (if only I didn’t need sleep, and I could read all night). It’s Thomas Hardy’s fourth novel and his first major literary success. As a lover of books and literacy, I’m ashamed of myself for not having read this yet. (slap on the hand for me!).

So happy I found this beautiful copy of this classic, unfortunately, someone thought it would make a good coaster, and had marked it with a cup ring! But I’ve rescued it now and it’s happily living on my shelf with love in its life! Charles Dickens is an all time favourite of mine and I love this little copy.
