#fortheloveofbookmarks #vintage I think I missed my calling , should have been an archivist.These were all found in used books.Gautier was here in Phoenix, I don‘t know anyone who remembers it. Went thru the paper on microfilm, ads & articles in the 1960s about it.Bonanza Inn started in the 70s. Pickwick was legendary. Tagged author became a rep.,worked there ,Crown Books hired some from there during their Ca.expansion.Owner was a real character!

Ruthiella 😎 Very cool! 4mo

I went looking for #vintage bookmarks and got distracted by CAKE (the dessert not the band). While this one may have that oldie timey look, it was actually acquired fairly recently as a thank you from the local indie bookseller to all the patrons who bought stuff during the pandemic and kept them afloat.

I thought I had a for real vintage bookmark, but it may have been just a little TOO vintage and got culled. 😕

Susanita Or it could be stashed in a book and I‘m not gonna look through them again 4mo

“He wanted all to lie in an ecstasy of peace; I wanted all to sparkle and dance in a glorious jubilee. I said his heaven would be only half alive; and he said mine would be drunk: I said I should fall asleep in his; and he said he could not breathe in mine.”

Book 2 in the Hard Case Crime series is another pick. Not as good as book 1, but this is another book with a great 1950s noirish vibe which reminds me a bit of L.A. Confidential. Lucky for me there are about 105 books in the series and I can‘t wait for the next one. It‘ll be my first read by Erle Stanley Gardner. 3.5 ⭐️

Always exciting to be offered an ARC! So new it‘s not even in the Litsy database yet....

The blurb sounds great so I‘m looking forward to this one.

This is the perfect creepy psycological thriller to keep you company as summer turns into fall.

Haunting.
The mind, the madness, and the renewal of Raskolnikov is a story that is timeless.
