I saw this book on Litsy, and loved the concept and the artwork. Added it to my Amazon wish list, and was surprised to receive it as a birthday gift! The story is inspired by the classic 1807 poem by William Roscoe. It is a visual fairytale using the illustrations of the distinctive British artist, Alan Aldridge. The colorful collection of animals has charmed both adults and children since 1973. #ayupaugust #animal #blameitonlitsy
(Day 11 - #OverMyShoulder)
*Gabriel Allon has been looking “over his shoulder” for going on 19 books now. That‘s what happens when you become an undercover agent for Israeli intelligence. An art restorer by trade, Allon is a bit of a reluctant asset. He usually has to be persuaded to come out of his comfortable life as an art restorer. The tagged book is the first in the series.
#blameitonlitsy for these, and there was no line for the audiobooks! 💃🏻🎧💃🏻
This book was so beautiful that's it impossible not to be completely invested. The story tells you the characters journey navigating the post apocalyptic world but is also not completely devoid of a plot. It was so unusual but refreshing to read a book that focuses on what comes after survival. 👇
What a clever romp through the landscape of literature— what it is, who reads it, who studies it, teaches it, censors it, publishes it, interprets it, writes it, and so on. It is meta fiction on steroids! It is a delight for lovers of literature. It is funny, philosophical, disorienting, & incisive. Even if you only pick it up to read chapter one on the life of the reader settling down with a new book, it‘s worth it! #ReadingAroundTheWorld #Italy
