My lovely friend gave me loads of book related birthday gifts this weekend.... The books look so interesting (tagged)... Fun bookish bits n bobs including a bookish key keyring and a bookmark that looks like a zip at the top of the page ... The wood covered 'notebook' actually opens into a book light. What an awesome bezzie #kindness #bookishgifts

#comiccovercrush Day 7
(I realize that this interpretation is stretching it a bit, but I love this book & I don't think I've posted it before)
Starting tomorrow I will begin posting my own twist on #7days7covers This one will focus on horror books. Join in & share your favorite horror covers for #horrorcovercrush !

Aimeesue I looooove Gorey! A is for Amy, who fell down the stairs, even if he spelled it wrong. 😁 one of my prizes possessions is a copy of Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, illustrated by Gorey, signed by Gorey , that I found in donations to the Book Sorting. Always check books before you donate them! 2mo
LeahBergen Oh, that sounds fun! I‘m off to look at my shelves. 👍🏻 2mo
LeahBergen @Aimeesue What a find! 😮 2mo

Aimeesue @LeahBergen I only picked it up because I adore Gorey, tbh. I don't usually look through them all for autographs. I also love the covers he did for Aiken's Wolves of Willoughby Chase series. I have most of them, I think. One signed, but by Aiken, not Gorey. 😋 2mo
vivastory @Aimeesue A signed Gorey? That's fantastic!! 2mo
vivastory @LeahBergen I'm so glad you are joining in! Looking forward to your posts! 2mo
batsy I love this! 2mo
batsy @Aimeesue Oooh the Gorey covers for the Wolves series are such treasures! And signed by Aiken! 💕 2mo
Reggie I think I might join you in #horrorcovercrush. 2mo
vivastory @Reggie Yes!! I'd love it if you joined in!! 2mo

Bookwomble @Trashcanman Thanks, George 😊 I'll wish you the same, though I'm not sure if you observe the same date for Father's Day in the US. 6mo
Bookwomble @batsy Isn't it! Something to keep me occupied and destressed 🙂 6mo

I love the ways books find us/we find them. I was reading about a new biography about Gorey (it‘s getting very good reviews) which of course mentioned that he did the opening credits for Mystery! back in the day. And then it mentioned some of the authors who like his work & I decided I had to read the tagged book, which collects 15 of his stories (most for kids). Odd, fantastic, dark, whimsical, eerie, brooding, mysterious, & loads of fun

I loved this! I was introduced to Gorey through his illustrations for John Bellairs‘ books back when I was in fourth grade, but I had never actually read any of his own stories. “Amphigorey” is a great Gorey starter — and of course my favourite book ended up being “The Gashlycrumb Tinies.” Deliciously unsettling artwork and nonsensical stories make for a great combination.

My favourite limerick from “The Listing Attic.”

Less than two weeks later, the baby gate is down, the shy boy is beginning to leave his cave, and most importantly, the kitties are becoming fast friends and even playing together! So happy this introduction has been a success! 😻😻 #catsoflitsy

Perfectly horrid and wonderfully morbid. I was lost a bit in some of the dreamlike stories, but the limericks scratched an itch I didn't know I had.
