I'm trying a new feature on book-a-rama. I hope you like it.
Brand new books get all the attention but what about those lonely wallflowers, those old pals 'on the shelf' just waiting to be asked out on Saturday night. I'm talking about old books. They might be dented, stained and possibly smelly but let's not hold it against them. They were once like those shiny new ARCs or just released titles once upon a time. Let's give them a little love today.
My first title is Watership Down by Richard Adams. I recently reviewed it and enjoyed it. My copy is a discarded library book bought at a sale a few years ago. I think it cost a buck. It's not in bad shape for a library book either. The dustcover is still intact with just a bit of a tear. It held up well even after bouncing around in my trunk during my Toronto trip. It's now resting quietly back on the bookshelf.
How about you? Do you have an old favorite you want to give a shout out to? Leave some love in the comments or feel free to blog about it yourself.
