From The Seaside and the Fireside. This is one of my favorite poems, although somewhat obscure. Longfellow seemed to have a special regard for his readers – one that also reflects how I feel about the online book community, which I have been a part of since 2009. Across time and space, we have shared our thoughts about the books we’ve read and authors we treasure. I’ve made many long-time friendships, and learned more than I could ever possibly have on my own. Thanks for sticking around… the voyage isn’t over yet. 🙂Comments >>
More 19th-century literature! I get chatty about Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Lewis Carroll, and Jules Verne as we finish off this second shelf. And oh, those wood engravings… ❤ Let me know if you've read any of these!
In this second episode, we continue on with more books in my physical bookcase. On this shelf, it’s mostly fairy tales and 19th-century literature, from E. T. A. Hoffmann and Mary Shelley, to Nathaniel Hawthorne and the Brontë sisters. Let me know if you’ve read any of these!
In this first episode, I’ll be going through some books on my physical to-read (and to-reread!) shelf. There’s all kinds of classics here, from Jane Eyre and The Count of Monte Cristo, to Emily Dickinson and William Faulkner. Also present are a few history books and fiction based on historical events. Enjoy, and let me know if you’ve read any of these!
P. S. Sorry for the shaky video and abrupt transitions (didn’t know there was a fifteen minute cutoff…it was better before the final edit, alas). Next time methinks I’ll get a tripod.
