Hi Bella, it would be great to see the new pieces of text you have found in the hard back version of Ross Poldark, but it would be better if you post them in the Poldark Experts area of the forum instead of here on the New Member's Introductions area. 

Look forward to seeing them if you decide to type them up.  So glad you have decided to join us!

PS.  If you want to add a line of your favourite text as a signature at the end of your posts, then go to your profile, click on 'signature' and just type in and save the text you want to appear on all your posts.  Good luck!

Hello Namparagirl......no that was me just trying to put one of my favourite quotes under my written piece......how do I do it? I see many of you have favourite quotes.......I am happy to put the 'added' texts on here, but did not want to without permission......I will go and get my books now. I cannot see that it will spoil things for anyone....it will just make interesting discussion on what editions we prefer? Also, how did they come about?

Hi Bella, welcome to the forum, great to have you on board.  I'm intrigued to know which bits of text you're referring to, sounds interesting.  If they're short, type a few on here for us to see please.  The bit you typed on below:-

Bella wrote:

She lit the candles and closed the windows to keep the moths out, took off the heavy coat and shook out her hair.   Oh yes, she was lovely tonight.

is this one of the quotes you're talking about?  I have this in both my paperback copies of 'Ross Poldark'

Looking forward to seeing you posting and how about joining in on the currently running Poldark word game, you're more than welcome.

Enjoy!!!!!!

Hi Tholly

They are not big bits of texts....am not sure if I can put an example on here or not......they would only be noticeable to a true fan who had read the novel several times over. Any chance you look like Tholly? He was gorgeous in the tv series!!

Hi Bella and welcome to the Forum smile Interesting about the new pieces of text you've discovered in the House of Stratus editions, is the pic below the book itself ?
Can't post them on here but any examples of the new exciting bits or will this spoil the enjoyment ?

There are great bargains to be had on Amazon....I purchased a hard back Demelza and a hardback Warleggan for 1p each.......plus postage.....I will look through my emails to see where I got my hardback Ross Poldark from.....it is brand new. I have managed to complete the collection now in hardback, but they are not all by the same publisher, so the books are all different on the shelf. Amazon is better than e-bay by the way.

Hello Bella - welcome to the Forum!

Carrying on from Char's comment yesterday....
I joined a Reading Group about 6 months ago with a view to meeting people and extending my rather limited choice of reading.  As a consequence I end up reading books that I would never have chosen - some of which I have quite enjoyed and others that definitely do NOT fit into that category.
Once I have read my 'homework' for the month I immediately reach for a Poldark and sink back into my comfort zone, and the lovely world of Nampara. Sooo relaxing!

Bella, i hadnt realised a hardback edition had been reprinted and icant imagine why any text would be missed out in earlier editions . Thats very interesting!
 I will have to look out for a copy. Thanks for mentioning it.

Due to failing eyesight, I have recently had to replace all my Paperbacks with Hardbacks, which provide a larger font.

I would like to discuss the Hardback copy of Ross Poldark published in 2002 by House of Stratus.

It is amazing how when reading favourite pieces,  you realise that you have almost come to know them word for word, and changes jump out at you filling you with excitement. 

There are certainly many new pieces of text in this edition. Does anyone know how they came about? I cannot believe Winston wrote them, as why were they left out of all the earlier publications?


Bella

Welcome to the poldark forum Bella, its always good to meet another poldark fan. We are quite a small group but we are very passionate about poldark! There are quite a few discussions that could do with resurrecting and so if there is any part of poldark you wish to discuss furthur please do, we like to hear new thoughts and ideas. Which is your favourite poldark book?
I agree wholeheartedly that reading poldark always makes me feel better, stepping into that world makes this one more pleasant..

I would like to introduce myself to the Forum. My name is Bella. I first read Poldark in the early 70's and have read all the novels about four times. About 12 years ago I visited the Poldark Mine during a holiday to Cornwall, and simply being in that part of the world was a dream come true.  I had no idea Winston had written 'Bella Poldark'. I have recently purchased a new hardback copy from Amazon for £4.99, but before I  read it I have embarked on reading all the novels from the beginning again. Whilst reading the saga, it always brings a 'good feel factor' to my life.
