I picked these up today, the Huxley for the cover by Max Ernst, as it has an "old money" price, and because for a drug book to be published in 1967, the Summer of Love, seemed apposite. I've got it in a more recent edition, so this was a bibliophilic purchase!
The Unholy City I haven't read before, but enjoyed Finney's Circus of Dr Lao and The Wizard Out of Manchuria, so happy to give this a spin. Also, cover love again, as it's a Peter A. Jones?

Bookwomble @bibliothecarivs Goodness! That would practically buy you a car in 1967! "Three-and-six" is three shillings and six pence ? Although my childhood was in the time of the "old money", and I clearly remember the old coinage, I grew up in the decimalised era, so I can't readily convert one too the other without thinking it through.

This book was a cute book for children. I love that the book explores how a cat might look from different animals points of view. This would be a great book for teaching children about point of view. I love how the underlying message is that it doesn‘t matter what he looks like to other animals, they all saw a cat!

Apparently I haven‘t posted here in 6 months… what?! Where has the time gone? This year is kicking my butt. I have a stack of books I need to actually log and review and an even larger stack I need to finish reading but I don‘t feel like doing that so here‘s a procrastination project I did: alphabetical section markers for my bookshelf.

BookNAround Love those! You may be procrastinating but at least you got something pretty cool out of it. 6mo

I am currently reading an Arabic translation of this book . Offers an interesting new perspective on the origin of language as a part of the sounds of nature.
