This afternoon on my bicycle ride to work I’ll be dropping off this collection of books at the Little Free Library in front of Arsaga’s at the Depot. If you happen to want any of these three books, just follow me on twitter and look for a tweet that says, “The drop has been made.” Then you can roll on over to the little library and pick them up!
This collection includes:
- Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot and illustrated by Edward Gorey. This classic is a staple in my family because my maternal grandmother adored it so much. I have a hard cover copy that she gave me, and there are several other copies in the attic where I got all of these books. The book has poems describing various cats and their personalities and is filled with excellent illustrations of the humanized cats. Great for all ages, especially those in the business of naming their own cats and in need of inspiration.
- Stranger In a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlen tells the story of a human raised by martians who comes to Earth from his home planet of Mars. 1960’s science fiction at it’s finest.
- The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner is the story of the Compson family, and is written in a stream of consciousness style. Good luck.
- The Arabian Nights translated by Richard Francis Burton is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales that were compiled in Arabic during the 8th-13th centuries. This edition is illustrated throughout.
In case you’re just stumbling upon this and you’re wondering why I’ve got a little stack of books on my blog, check out my intro to this series. And remember, if you want any of these books, all you have to do is stop by the Little Free Library at Arsaga’s at the Depot and pick them up!
