A Persephone Classic that I don't think has even been read, 'Someone at a Distance' by Dorothy Whipple. Not sure whether it will be any good, but I have read many wonderful things about all the carefully chosen Persephone books so will give it a try. I am also, much as I try to resist, a sucker for packaging, and I love both the elegant grey and the individually selected endpapers that all the Persephone books feature.

'The Sound of Music' soundtrack on vinyl. Haven't played it yet, but it doesn't look scratched...not that I'll mind too much if it is, it was worth the purchase for the cheerful cover alone, complete with buttercup scattered meadow and gambolling Von Trapps.
