Before I share my latest book haul, I thought I would share "my page"!! My card is in the lower left, entitled "Poetry". Pretty nifty, eh?? If you like paper arts, I really do recommend this book. There are so many talented artists included. It amazing what people come up with--all the new ideas using vintage papers that others might just pitch in the garbage! I really do have to get my artsy stuff out and be creative again. My problem is I have too many expensive hobbies. They needn't be expensive really, but I am so compulsive about things, I have to buy all the cool new things I see.
Now...my new books. All the Modern Library editions are the books I got from Amazon. I am still waiting for a couple more books! The other two smaller books I happened to find in the university bookstore today. I had to pop in there for something and started browsing the popular reading shelves. They have loads of classics, and I decided to buy some "Halloween" titles! I bought The Tell-Tale Heart and Other Writings (short stories, poetry and a full-length novel--including my favorite "A Cask of Amontillado") by Edgar Allen Poe, and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Last year I read Stoker's Dracula, so maybe this year it will have to be Frankenstein! And I even managed to find a cool bookmark. As for the ML editions: F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and the Damned , H.G Wells' When the Sleeper Wakes (sounds interesting), The Selected Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay (I really need to read more poetry), and finally W.E.B. Du Bois' John Brown (another one that sounded interesting). As you see--I am on a classics binge now!!
