It's been two decades since I last read Silko's Ceremony, and it's a) as good as I remember, b) better than I remember, c) a masterpiece, d) extremely relevant for the current moment.

Really, really in love with these editions. Really enjoying working my way through re-reading them, too.

8leagueboot They are so beautiful. I'm only going to allow myself to buy them as I re-read them, even though I have a very "take my money" gut instinct about them! 3y
BraveNewBooks Wow, gorgeous 3y

Thank you, Litsians!

Lizpixie I'm trying to buy a copy of your book but bookdepository.com doesn't have it, I can't find it on Australian sites and the shipping on Amazon is ridiculous. Do you have any suggestions? 3y
colindickey @Lizpixie: ack, I'm sorry to hear this! I don't think it has distribution in Australia, which is part of the problem, and I'm not sure I have a good and easy solution. Maybe an ebook is a better bet? 3y
Lizpixie @colindickey I much prefer print form, especially for a non fiction book. Thanks for answering, I'll just have to keep looking and hope a solution presents itself. Have a great day!🙋 3y
Clevercactus I just bought Ghostland. Your $0.25 royalty check will be on its way next month ;) 3y
colindickey @Clevercactus Whoo-hoo! Thank you, and I hope you enjoy the book! 3y

Falcon | Helen Macdonald
post image

"All encounters with falcons are in a strong sense encounters with ourselves--whether the falcons are real or imaginary, whether seen through binoculars, framed on gallery walls, versified by poets, flown as hunting birds, spotted through Manhattan windows, sewn on flags, stamped on badges, or seen winnowing through the clouds over abandoned arctic radar stations."

What a great opening to a book one is reading in a cafe.

Sometimes you buy a book you already own just for the cover design.
