Summer Sabbatical

Jumping off the grid tomorrow for 10 days of lazing about in Canada's Algonquin National Park. A long uninterrupted stretch of swimming, hammock swinging, eating and summer reading.

Here's my pile for this year:

I'll try to pick up the pace with blog posts once I'm back and refreshed.

Bye all.

I love this:

THIS SHOP IS HAUNTED by the ghosts
Of all great literature, in hosts;

We sell no fakes or trashes.
Lovers of books are welcome here,
No clerks will babble in your ear,

Please smoke--but don't drop ashes!
----
Browse as long as you like.
Prices of all books plainly marked.
If you want to ask questions, you'll find the proprietor
where the tobacco smoke is thickest.
We pay cash for books.
We have what you want, though you may not know you want it.

Malnutrition of the reading faculty is a serious thing.

Let us prescribe for you.

Too true. I wish quaint bookshops still exist.
