Happy Halloween Bookies....beware of all the creepy things that go bump in the night *evil laugh* #halloween
My good friend June and her wonderful husband! She lives in the town the #DramaticReading is performed in (Milford, PA, at Grey Towers). She‘s a fine oil painter with a gallery. She has painted many famous authors, and especially #EdgarAllanPoe, of whom she has done many, many portraits. One of them is in the first picture on the right. (Her husband plays 🎅🏻 every year!) She wants me to find “a good bookish lady” and bring her for a visit 😆🤗.
#hello Thursday @wanderinglynn
1. Tintinnabulation—always followed by “of the bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells”
2. Do it all the time, just can‘t remember one now.
3. Antidisestablishmentarianism (sp?)
4. Twirlyround—my own word to describe those giant circles coming off a freeway
5. Go crazy you Littens
Repped my “Poeka” dot socks today in honor of the holiday. We don‘t get trick or treaters on our street, so I am spending my night packing for Mexico (leaving tomorrow night!) while watching the new season of Daredevil. Hope to sneak in a little bit of reading before bed!
Brand-new tiny shop in Milford--The Poe And Raven Gallery--and it's literary art 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!!!!!! It's stunning inside--you most DEFinitely want to visit here sometime. The owners are a couple who used to have a bookstore in Hoboken, which explains the #NYC style of the place. 😎👍🏻👍🏻
This is a pretty creepy #illustratededition complete with some pop ups. Spooky. Hair-raising. Warning- only for the strong-hearted and not recommended before bedtime.
I have the Sherlock Holmes illustrated pop up edition as well, but thought of scaring you all with Poe. 😁
Coolest pen and journal ever #easterbasketbookswap
1. At the front and just work my way back and forth.
2. "I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity." - Edgar Allan Poe, speaking about the death of his wife Virginia.
3. Never have really gifted one but my recent favourite we bought for our nephew is Box of Bats by Brian Lies.
For my birthday earlier this week, I had a bookish day in Philadelphia. I stopped by the Free Library's rare book room, the Rosenbach and various indie bookstores. I highly recommend hitting the rare book room if you are in the area.
And one more @saresmoore
One must have Poe!
Mother's Day a day early. My son had custom made Edgar Allan Poe Vans made for me!!
Episode 1: Poe and Cupcakes and I: Nicetameetcha | https://www.blubrry.com/theremightbecupcakes/ | In which Carla explains why eccentric doesn't equal crazy, that horror poetry is a thing, and that cupcakes are linked to better mental health. And books. So many books.

The closer we creep toward our destination, the less I feel able to speak to my traveling companion. Words are able to escape my throat but my lips feel pressed by some diabolical force unseen. I took a selfie in order to attempt to capture an image of my tormentor. My horror cannot be described! I am beginning to fear this pilgrimage is ill-fated. So many birds...#horror #storytelling #Virginia #EdgarAllanPoe #Poe #readingselfie #horrorselfie
Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe! Here's a sketch of him I did. What an awesome guy! Anyone read any books about him and his life? I loved the book "Mrs. Poe." You get to know him through the eyes of a lover. It's great on audio!
#Booktober Day 4 - Bookmarks
I'll generally use whatever is nearby to hold a page, but here are some #bookmarks specifically designed for that purpose. I also try to snag bookmarks from favorite bookshops when I pop in.
Not home to photograph my shelves for @Liberty Fun Friday 🎉 but this quote on the wall of the pub 😂. So, what do I love to read? ❤️ Greek lit, mythology, Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf, Henry James, Poe, books with strong, flawed characters, books about books, literary memoirs and bios, cookbooks...
