“Wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.” #favorite #booklove #masterpiece

#OldCoolBooks #day23 #Masterpiece As far as I‘m concerned,this is a masterpiece of high fantasy.It‘s still the benchmark I hold every fantasy book to, it has everything you want in a great story. There‘s castles & battles,magic,elves,a RiftWar between two completely different worlds & a young boy with a rags to power story.This copy is my original edition that I‘ve had since I was 15yrs old & was personally signed by the author at a convention.✍🏼

ReadZenRites Well read and well loved 😊💗 1y
Utopiyll Same! This novel changed all other fantasy books for me, and there have only been a few to rival it! I keep my old copy close to my heart as well 😭 I love this book! 1y

#OldCoolBooks #Masterpiece

I'm not saying Little Women is a masterpiece, although it is a childhood favorite of mine, but I love the illustrations by Louis Jambor in this 1947 edition. I got it for $3 at the big Honolulu Friends of the Library book sale several years ago. I especially love the many color illustrations--each one is like a little masterpiece. 💙

JazzFeathers It is really beautiful. I'm always shocked at what previous edition you can find in second hand sellings and often for so little money. Don't people know the treasures they own? 1y

This 1870 four-volume edition of “the Complete Works of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow” includes, among many others, the epic poem “Evangeline,” which was considered a #masterpiece at the time. Perhaps it still is. This set was passed down to me by my grandfather in 2000; it appears to have been purchased new and lived in the family library for the preceding 130 years.

Lcsmcat Wow! I remember reading Evangeline the summer after 8th grade. My mother would send me out of the house to try to make me socialize at the neighborhood pool, and I‘d stick my (paperback) copy in my bag and just read. Happy memories. 1y

ReadZenRites Thank you @Lcsmcat @CoverToCoverGirl and @merelybookish 😊💕 Some fun trivia: Evangeline was used in Disney‘s “the Princess and the Frog” movie as the basis for the fireflies‘ love story. ✨ 1y

David Copperfield | Dickens Charles

It was a 1999 #Masterpiece Theatre adaptation of David Copperfield that introduced the viewing public to a young actor who would go on to make magic and steal audiences hearts and imaginations as Harry Potter. It's not easy to share the screen with legends like Bob Hoskins and Maggie Smith, but Daniel Radcliffe managed to stand out to the HP casting directors!
