The Books of My Numberless Dreams

Art of Reading

Posted on: February 10, 2007

As promised here are close-ups of the miniature reproductions Sylvia sent me. They are quite lovely.


And as a bonus here is a picture showing a part of one of my book shelves located over my bed. You can see the beginnings of a “smile” in the wood; I occasionally wonder if a tumble of books will terrorise me out of sleep one night.


Here is my small pile of NYRB classics.

That’s not just the beginnings of a smile. If I were you, I’d be afraid… very afraid!

I feel sorry for that lttle bookshelf!

Hahahahahaha! You two are something else. I am not afraid at all, Solnushka it isn’t *that* bad and Gimli is only faking pity to make me feel bad. :p

Beautiful!! My favourite is the second from the right, first row of 4 under the one with the dog. That was such an awkward sentence. Oh btw, I backed you up on Upper Fort Worth re: your normalness and I expect the same treatment at some point in the future! hehe

Those NYRB classics look so nice! I love what they do there.

Heather that’s ok, I understood you. My favourite would be the one second from the left, in the row below yours–the most modern one of the lot in style. I love the bright colours and the bold strokes.

Ha, and thanks for offering support.

Dorothy thanks. So do I!

yay. richard hughes representin’

You’re more brave than I am, I wouldn’t be sleeping anywhere near that shelf! 😉

I love the NYRB Classics – nice to know you’re a fan too. Great books they have.

But that bookshelf over your bed – that’s a REALLY ominous “smile”…

Amanda nice to see another fan.

Carl V and Dark Orpheus it’s been almost 6 months, thank you, and I’ve been quite fine. And yes DO I browse their much of my buying list is filled with NYRB selections.

With Yoda Voice: “Ahhhh, much of NYRB Classics read we MUST.”

Those NYRB editions are really lovely. I bought one used (a Rebecca West) not too long ago. I wouldn’t mind adding a few more to my collection!
