StuckinaBook’s Weekend Miscellany

By the time you see this, I’ll probably be driving off to a dear friend’s wedding – thankfully the temperature has come down a bit, so the idea of putting on a suit doesn’t make me collapse in a puddle of tears. I hope you’re having a great weekend, wherever you are – and I’ll help you along the way with a book, a blog post, and a link.

Scribbles in the Margins1.) The book – Scribbles in the Margins: 50 Eternal Delights of Books by Daniel Gray. WILL people please stop publishing books about reading while I’m on Project 24?? It’s the greatest temptation, and I very much want this. I went to school with a Daniel Gray, but I suspect it’s not the same one… though, who knows, maybe all the cool kids are bibliophiles now too.

2.) The blog post – be beguiled by this collection of excerpts about glass, courtesy of Jane at Beyond Eden Rock. Even more beguilingly, she doesn’t introduce it – so we have no idea why or how or when the idea and selection came to her.

3.) The linkBehind the GIFs. Silly but brilliant.

    This will not save you from heatstroke, but I feel SO SORRY for guys at fancy events that take place in the summer. I do not like sweating through my formal wear but MY GOD I can at least wear a spaghetti strap dress if the mood takes me. Y’all are stuck in long sleeves no matter what, which is the WORST. I hope that the weather stays good for your friend’s wedding.

    I have bought and am enjoying ‘Scribbles in the Margins’ reading about
    Handwritten dedications in old books
    Re-reading an old favourite
    Chaotic book rooms and enthusiastic owners trying to find something for you
    Letting poetry tingle your spine.

    Excellent purchase and at 7 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches (old imperialist here) easily tucked into a pocket.
