The African Queen | C. S. Forester
post image

ModLib haul from Riverby Books today. I adore the cover for The African Queen. Hope it‘s not as racist as I fear it‘s going to be. The one without a DJ is A High Wind in Jamaica.

Aimeesue @Liz_M I've never read any Gidé before, but I will buy a ML no matter who wrote it. Looking forward to it! ? 2w
Aimeesue @Crazeedi @Lcmscat @LeahBergen @Tanisha_A Some days I get really lucky at the used bookstores. Some days all I see is Twilight and 7000 copies of Dickens novels. 😋 (edited) 2w

Aimeesue @vivastory I‘d never heard of him, but it seemed like something I should read. I don‘t read much poetry, but it feels like I should. (I‘ll just note here that I CAN recite Jabberwocky and On Flanders Field from memory tho) 3mo
Lcsmcat The Enormous Room was a surprise hit for me when I read it. Very different from his poetry. 3mo
vivastory Very impressive, Jabberwocky is one of my favorites. Hirsch is great at being accessible & informative without talking down. He's so genuinely passionate about poetry & it really comes across. 3mo
Leftcoastzen I love the Cummings too. 3mo
BarbaraBB Me too 3mo
Aimeesue @Lcsmcat I found it in a poetry display! I bought it because it was a ML edition, but didn't realize it was prose until I got it home. 3mo
Aimeesue @Leftcoastzen @BarbaraBB I am so glad to hear that! The "A Note on the Author" intro is cracking me up. ? 3mo
Lcsmcat @Aimeesue Funny! I knew it was prose, but also bought it because it was ML. 3mo

Another stack of replenishment 😁! The top two are for the #ModernLibrary Display, and the other four for the #AutumnalColors Display.

Have you read any of these?!

Penguin Island | Anatole France

Last book haul from Riverby Books until August when the daughter returns to school. I have no idea what Penguin Island is about, but how can one resist a book with a title like that?

Found a couple Modern Library editions amongst the donation- many of them with dust jackets, which I don‘t usually see on the older ones.

28 out of 38 of my Modern Library Editions with dust jackets. All that will fit on this credenza. I have 27 without dust jackets also. 🥰 #collectible #oldbooks #modernlibrary #blumenthal

Lcsmcat Have you read Winesburg Ohio yet? My interest is piqued after having read Prairie Fires, which mentions it multiple times. 13mo
jillrhudy @lcmscat no but of all people who should, I am at the top of the list! Maybe I will read it this week. 13mo

Aimeesue “Credenza” is such a fun word to say. “Go put that on the credenza.” “Yes, your keys are on the credenza, I believe.” I may get one just so I can say it all the time. 13mo
