exercise ~ family field trip ~ Free Little Library = practically perfect Monday I chose this bookmark instead of a book.
On this day Edgar Allan Poe was born January 19, 1809 in Boston, MA?? Did you know the following facts about Poe? -Poe excelled academically at university despite his attendance and gambling problems. -Many scholars call him the "architect" of the modern short story. -Poe wrote not only horror stories, but also short stories resembling detective stories and science fiction.
Hello, #LitsyFamily 🤗🤗🤗!!! After a very busy day of work at the library, @BookBabe and I are at #GreyTowers for an #EdgarAllanPoe Reading 😱😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!!! Can't wait! 90 minutes of Poe-ish enjoyment.
Have you attended this kind of reading before?
Oh, and the portrait on the right is painted by a dear friend of ours who is sitting just to the left of this picture. She owns the Poe Gallery I posted about a ways back.
🗂 Chaos! Over 1000 with small & insufficient shelves. Stacks all over. I have a few piles for: ARCs/Giveaways won, middle grade, and mass market paperback. I guess newer in is closer to the top.
📖 Collection of Edgar Allan Poe works. Romance, Poetry, Suspence, Horror... he's got it all.
👃 Sometimes at home, mostly when buying used.
📚 Yes, but usually for cute covers & used.
I literally cant stand how amazing these are!!! I want them all! I tried to restrain myself but i ended up buying Dracula and the Edgar Allan Poe Collection! *side note* They were $9.98 in store and they are available online but they were way more expensive!
Day 2, of my 7 days of Poe stuff... ? I bought this through a Kickstarter project (https://goo.gl/sRf1Nb) a few years ago. The illustrations are by David G. Forés. I forgot what package this was but it included the LP and several other things. There are so many Kickstarter projects, some Poe related, but I try to stick to my favorites. It‘s worth keeping a close eye on their site, just in case something special turns up. ?
I have spent this afternoon dipping in and out of stories and poems by Mr Poe. One of my all time favourite poems is Annabel Lee! Matthew Gray Gubler does a wonderful reading of it that I found on you tube 😍 I plan to work my way through this collection in the next year! Does anyone else have a favourite work by Poe?! #Poe #AnnabelLee #poetry
In honor of #nationalbookloversday, the Providence Athenaeum, where in 1848, Edgar Allan Poe's fiancée, poet Sarah Helen Whitman, broke up with him 2 days before their Christmas wedding due to his alcoholism (he proposed in a cemetery, so the relationship was perhaps ill-fated from the start). The Athenaeum remains an independent members library and is a must visit for book lovers if you find yourself in Providence!
