I wanted to show one of those cute bookstore stickers from the old days with an object people would recognize for size comparison. Just a reminder of the store you bought it from. Or maybe attract new business if it was a gift. I love finding these and bookplates.🥰

underground_bks We call them bookseller tickets in the trade! 4mo
charl08 Love this! 4mo
Leftcoastzen @underground_bks found this a treasure trove. Though an article in fine books said binders call it a ticket bookstores , it‘s a label 🤷‍♀️ http://sevenroads.org/Bookish.html 4mo

LeahBergen That‘s very “deco” shaped! 4mo
Leftcoastzen @LeahBergen the book was originally published in the teens , this is a later printing 1924 , so right timing 4mo
batsy That's very cute. Love the unobtrusive personalised touch. So different from the stickers of today that ruin covers and seem to almost shout at you 🙃 4mo

I absolutely love wearing rings, and anklets, and this sentence described my love for them like nothing else has. Tiny fragments of loveliness indeed.

BarbaraBB Well said 🥰 5mo

The story concerns a young married woman, the former Constance Reid (Lady Chatterley), whose upper-class baronet husband, Sir Clifford Chatterley, described as a handsome, well-built man, is paralysed from the waist down because of a Great War injury. Constance has an affair with the gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors.

Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes.

Zennor in Darkness | Helen Dunmore
post image

I was delighted to be invited by @shawnmooney to talk about Helen Dunmore's debut Zennor in Darkness on his Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@shawnthebookmaniac6275) this summer. The episode of Bite-Sized Book Chats that I appeared on dropped yesterday and you can watch that here: https://youtu.be/lDu_cUSDY44?si=8nfdoqxoXsrYkcaV. I start at about 7:22, but the whole episode is worth watching.

BarbaraBB Will definitely watch! 9mo
dabbe Lovely. Or as Audrey Hepburn would say in MY FAIR LADY, “Loverly.“ 🧡 9mo
shawnmooney I didn‘t see the notification for this until just now. Great! Looking forward to having you back on again! 9mo

Pickpick

This is my 7th book by Helen Dunmore, so I guess you could say I am a fan. Like everything she writes, this is a beautiful, albeit sad story that takes place during WW1 and concerns a young girl, Clare, her cousin, John William, and D.H. Lawrence. Not much happens, but it is totally immersive and evocative of a time and place.

shawnmooney I‘m intrigued! Do you know that I have a series on my BookTube channel called Bite-sized Book Chats, when I talk to readers from all over the world about a book they‘ve read recently and enjoyed. I‘d love to have you come on Zoom and chat with me for just 10 or 15 minutes about this novel. The playlist of all 60+ episodes is here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-61cZp1pQdBH5V0Zb9q-2ujl4PY8nhf. Let me know! :-) 11mo
TheLudicReader I would totally be down for that, @shawnmooney 11mo
shawnmooney Woo hoo! I‘m not sure how else to get in touch other than email so here‘s my email address: shawnmooneyincanada@gmail.com Looking forward to making this happen! 11mo

Just three chapters in and I already have fallen out of love with this book. What a frustrating way of writing. DNF.

Hope, LCL is better than this one.

... It was a sort of romantic situation that she knew so well in fiction she hardly understood it in fact.

BarbaraBB That‘s what people in Ukraine are probably thinking right now too 💔 (edited) 1y
tpixie Wow I do seem to recall how was World War I and World War II? There seemed to be romance about it. TV & Vietnam stopped all that. 1y

Weekly Report

Continuing on with these three biggish books. Nana continues to entertain, #Clarissa to rile up, and The Rainbow to expound.

Graywacke A picture that makes me want to read old books 1y
Daisey I‘m looking forward to reading Nana at some point. I read L‘Assommoir, very much about her mother, last year and really enjoyed Zola‘s attention to detail. 1y
Liz_M @Graywacke But, you do read old books! Books written in old English and ancient Greek! 1y

Liz_M @Daisey Unfortunately, I am reading this as a stand-alone. It's been way too long since I read L‘Assommoir and had forgotten the connection. @sisilia's post reminded me that there was a connection at all. So, I guess I'll have to read La Bête Humaine sooner rather than later! 1y
Graywacke @Liz_M yes, true that. Well, it‘s strong reinforcement. 🙂 1y
Lcsmcat I‘ve had Nana on my TBR forever. I think I need to bump it up. 1y
