What my night is consisting of tonight!
One of my adopted families sent me a care package today! ❤
"I must not only punish, but punish with impunity."
The Cask of Amontillado is my favorite Poe work. As I've been reading through the short stories the past few days, I am finding that they are hit or miss for me. Some are excellent and really strike a chord with me, but others bore me to tears. I have mostly skimmed or bailed on those. I must confess though that I'm not a huge fan of short stories in general. #shortstories #poe
“What shall be done? I‘ll lay it on the table,
And take the matter up when I‘m more able;
And, in the meantime, to prevent all bother,
I‘ll neither laugh with one, nor cry with t‘other”

Why and what are you dreaming here?”

@mjester Here is my edition. It is my most favorite book in my collection. Every once in awhile I have to take it down off the shelf and read it. My favorite works by him include The Tell-Tale Heart and The Bells but my utmost favorite would have to be The Masque of the Red Death.
Have you seen any of the original Vincent Price/Poe films?
Edgar Allan Poe May not have been born in Baltimore but it‘s where he died and is buried #MyTown #BaltimoreMD We have Poe themed Bars & Restaurants, Poe‘s grave where you can take a tour and listen to performances of his works. If you love Poe it is a fun place to visit 😊 #ANewChapter 🥂
Winter Hayes as #EdgarAllanPoe for her 9 month photos ❤️ Of course they had fun with the fake mustaches after as well 😍 I can‘t believe our Baby is so big already!
This is my death card. He represents natural & timely endings, release and liberation. Whenever we talk about death I always think about my main man Edgar Allan Poe as most of his stories and poetry are written on the subject.

A book that I've been reading on and off for ages, it's just overwhelmingly huge; it's such a beautiful book. My favourite story so far would be Bon Bon, it was rather witty.
Have you read any Poe?
What's your favourite piece of writing by him?
I'd also like to watch some Poe adapted movies, could you recommend any?

Bike ride with the love of my life and Edgar Allan Poe 🌼🌞😍
Be still my "heart". I can't believe I found this! I'm so excited to have found it just waiting for me in my room.
Just read "The Balloon-Hoax" and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" again today. I'm rereading the ones I read for school for one of the prompts on the Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. These two are not my faves but I did enjoy rereading "...Rue Morgue" more than "The Balloon-Hoax" though. ?

#OldCoolBooks | May 4: dust jackets
This dust jacket has seen some better days, but it‘s in alright shape considering it‘s been around for 80 years.
My bookish haul from Awesome Con in DC, featuring some wonderful art from the very talented @SkeletonKey 🖤🖤
Congrats @OrangeMooseReads 😄🎉
I have this enormous, beautiful hardback of all collected Poe. Annabel Lee is my favorite poem. The Raven is good too, but my favorite of his is The Black Cat.
The box is a bit scuffed now, but this is still one of my favorite Poe treasures.(I hoard Poe items like a grumpy old dragon.) My mother recited The Raven to me when I was very young and I instantly fell in love.🖤 @GarthRanzz @mypoesoul
Heading home from Richmond, but made a quick stop at the Poe museum. Even though half was under construction, it was fantastic and we got too meet Edgar (pictured) and Pluto (Edgar‘s brother, not pictured). 🖤

Could not resist showing Poe the mug ( Hubby‘s suggestion; he loved the mug!) My son‘s book- he is reading Poe in an American Lit class this semester.
Emmy wanted to be in photo so she gave him kisses. Maybe she wants a mug for her too?! (Emily Dickinson) Thanks again, . @laundry_piles you can see I am having fun with your gift. Now to fill it with coffee & eat chocolate.
I love these Gothic Fantasy editions they are gorgeous and this one is especially lovely 💙
Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorite writers. #paranormal #cringeworthy #trickytwists #readingresolutions @Jess7
#newyearreads New Book Selfie with my Poe complete tales & poems book i got for Christmas. A bit too heavy to take a true one handed selfie so i sorta cheated needed hubby to snap it 📷 😄
Here's my Goodreads year in review! I had set my goal to 100 books and wasn't unhappy about not making it because I'd read several very long books. But I went back through the years and found that the only years I've actually read 100 books are 2016 and 2013. So I guess it wasn't the easy goal I thought it was! I still read a lot this year and I'm happy about it.
I'll still list Poe as an author I love, but for the most part, reading this book has convinced me that there's a reason some of his stories and poems are well known and others are not. In particular, his satires have not stood the test of time, and I don't even know what to say about The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Still, I'm glad to have finished it and to own this massive tome! #NewYearsReadathon
