July Book Photo Challenge Day 7: Flowers
Emily Dickinson: Selected Poems
I’ve complained enough about the struggle of Look Homeward, Angel, so today’s answer is A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. In my defense, my life was hectic when I was trying to read it, but my indifferent feelings toward it certainly extended the amount of time I spent on it. Luckily, it’s only one of two books on my list that I wasn’t endeared with.
The Vintage Classics Austen series designed by Leanne Shapton.
↳ The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
“Secrets have power. And that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well. Sharing secrets, real secrets, important ones, with even one other person, will change them. Writing them down is worse, because who can tell how many eyes might see them inscribed on paper, no matter how careful you might be with it. So it’s really best to keep your secrets when you have them, for their own good, as well as yours.”
The Outsider and Others | H.P. Lovecraft | 1939
First Edition. The first publication from Arkham House and first collection of Lovecraft’s stories, published posthumously, which would go on to not only to have an enormous influence on horror fiction, but on film and music as well.
Very Good plus in an about Very Good dust jacket. Light bumps to the top corners, and a slight lean. Jacket is rubbed, with light toing to the spine and rear panel, with chips and tears overall. Still, a mostly presentable example of the scarce dust jacket.
