Sunday Serenity #64


In the hours before and after the fiercest heat of the day this week, I'm finding my serenity in the pages of books this. The novel I am currently reading is another which, like The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, has old books and manuscripts as its focus. Though in the case of Geraldine Brooks' People of the Book, the focus is on the history of a single ancient book and its travels across Europe rather than on the history contained in a number of old libraries and musty archives scattered over Europe and America.

Do check out the link to the picture above. The site provides quite a few pictures of old books that are public domain. All they ask is that you link it back to them. That is eminently fair. The pictures are all so enticing I am tempted to write posts just for the purpose of displaying them.
