Book photo challenge: day 20-book recommendation
Look, every house needs a copy of this in their home. It’s a household book from Victorian England. It has recipes, home remedies, how to treat your domestic servants, how to rear children. 630 pages. You need to own this!!!
Better living through anachronisms!
Book photo challenge: day 19- funniest character
"Funny" might not quite be fitting, but there are few characters in the history of literature I enjoy reading about more than Joyce.
Book photo challenge: day 18- favorite ending
Rehearsal video for Clarence’s dream monologue from Richard III, which I performed tonight at an artist’s panel about darkness in the arts.
Book photo challenge: day 17- a book set in your state or town
A lot of his poems talk about places within short driving distance of my home.
Book photo challenge: day 16- favorite fandom
Clearly I did not take the photo, but I did make this graphic back when everyone was doing that silly “I got an Eagle” spirit animal meme.
Wodehouse is my favorite fandom.
Book photo challenge: day 15- book store
I meant to run downtown and take a photo of the used bookstore today, but ended up staying indoors all day. So what I have here is something I found in a used book (The New Laokoon: An Essay on Confusion of the Arts by Irving Babbitt, in case you’re curious). It’s a ticket to Harvard’s graduation of 1910, which, if I have my Harvard history right, is when Dr. Eliot came out with the Harvard Classics Library. It was the ticket of George Benson Weston, the music arranger and collector, more than a slight footnote in Harvard’s history himself (and, it would appear, a fellow sort of person who brings a book with him to a graduation). I was over the moon when I found this.
This is Schubert. This is the first sight I see when I wake up every morning.
Book photo challenge: day 14- Back to school reads
Ha! I don’t know! I’m 37 over here! I’m a dinosaur on tumblr! Read Goodbye, Mr. Chips or something. I’ll be in the corner reading Verlaine.
Book photo challenge: day 13- bookish items
Shakespeare DVDs I guess.
