scribbles & wanderlust
Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

--"Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold

Today’s the big day! Remember the tease I posted some time ago? The guest posts are up!

Lindsey (Bring My Books) and I befriended one another after a Top Ten Tuesday post a few weeks ago. We noticed we were both Jane Eyre collectors, and decided to do guest posts that featured these beloved copies. Some are the same, and many are different (and let me tell you, we’re both super pumped to find even more editions now!), and our journeys with Jane took us down separate paths that eventually led us to one another!

Enjoy! We’re so excited to share these with you!
