BHE

Myra here.

Last week, we celebrated our 100th BHE Post. Like what I noted, we are inviting fellow book hunters to share with us photographs of your favorite bookstores (be it indie, discounted book stores, book cafes, big retail bookshops) and a few of your amazing book finds. We welcome guest posts from anyone in the world who would wish to share their latest bookplace discoveries. Even library finds and pictures of your libraries would be most welcome. Please send your BHE post to gatheringbooks (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Here are the books that found me this week.

Other Books that Caught my Eye

Three Ladies Beside the Sea by Rhoda Levine and Drawings by Edward Gorey. Simply because I love anything by Gorey.

At Large and At Small by Anne Fadiman. This was recommended by Elisabeth Ellington of Dirigible Plum in one of her Monday reading posts, so I was intrigued. It is highly likely that I would be unable to read this Donna Tartt book, The Secret History but I shall try.

Ex-Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman.

Finally, we have it. The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen. I thought it would be best to read the last book in the trilogy while the story is still fresh in my mind.

How about you, dear friends, what books found their way into your hands this week?

  1. Oh to find something by Edward Gorey-how wonderful. I think I haven’t seen your call for photos, Myra. I was lately at a favorite used bookstore & made a wonderful find, an older poetry book by Myra Cohn Livingston-Cricket Never Dies. This store is crammed with books, a terrific adventure every time I go. And, I don’t know those first two books you shared, will look for them, too! Thank you!
