Milly & Dottie's Jolly Good Read

Just a quickie to let you know about a new competition we're running over at The Emporium - Milly and Dottie's Jolly Good Read.
As our thoughts to turn to Summer Holidays and the inevitable pile of books that will be accompanying us, we decided to compile a list of favourite vintage books chosen by you.
What we would like to know is, what kind of book tickles your fancy? Is it flora and fauna? Meringues and macaroons? Kitchen sinks and afternoon teas? Jolly good adventures or a mystery or two? Is it Aunty Fanny's fruit cake and a Famous Five mystery that ticks your boxes or a touch of blackberry picking with Milly Molly Mandy? Please let us know...
For further details please see our blog and send all entries to us via our email. So if you're feeling bookish we'd love to hear from you and one lucky winner will receive a jolly good read as a prize...
