World Book Day is celebrated April 23.
I love books almost as much as I love coffee.
As much as I love living my entire life within a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.
Here is what I’m currently reading/to-read list +a few recent new additions to my bookshelf:
A couple of Burma to-read pieces by Emma Larkin.
This bookworm ♥’s the SFPL. These two book stacks fotos were inspired by bloggie pal from Tijuana Velcro/ZiaZia
A few I’ve recently completed, or are almost done with:
✕ Sagan’s Billions & Billions subtitle is” Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium. It’s a great math+life book.
✕ Sway is a fictional novel about Brian Jones +the Rolling Stones. Having read Life by Keef, I’ve found the novel rather hard to get into asking, like, how does the novelist really know this could’ve gone through their heads. I been jaded by Keef, that I know.
✕ Anna Karenina is part of the book club with my GFs, interesting but not quite a personal choice. Getting to its half point as a milestone has been kind of a reading effort, I must say. Romance is not quite my cup of tea.. but have enjoyed it so far.
I have yet to start: The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch
“This is not your mother’s memoir. In The Chronology of Water, Lidia Yuknavitch expertly moves the reader through issues of gender, sexuality, violence, and the family from the point of view of a lifelong swimmer turned artist.” -goodreads
I am very grateful to have received the above 2 fashion books over the Holidays. Pretty amazing, a present large format to make a clear statement +an infinite source of inspiration. McQueen’s book is a lenticular trippy cover, I love it.
Two graphic design books I’ve recently purchased.
(On the left) Restless typographer Jurrian Schrofer (1926-90).
(On the right) Graphic Artists Guild Handbook 13th Edition.
There is a connection about World Book Day +Don Quixote de la Mancha, Wikipedia indicates:
“The connection between 23 April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Spain as a way to honour the author Miguel de Cervantes who died on that day.” [World Book Day on wikipedia]
