Simply delightful video supercut of all bookish scenes throughout the films of Wes Anderson - the opening scene may be hard for some bibliophiles.

Intrigue, espionage and explosives - the story behind Boris Pasternak's legendary novel Doctor Zhivago is even more riveting than the book itself.

Can you even believe how beautiful some books are? 1928 Annabel Lee & Other Poems by Edgar Allan Poe. Design, illuminations and calligraphy by Sangorski, binding by Riviere & Son.  Worth it to click through and see the other images (and the price!).

The librarian from my old high school, Mrs. Cooney, is my book hero.  She helped me discover a world of literature that I never knew existed.

What are your reading this weekend? Our colleague Heike is reading The Open Road by E.V. Lucas. In Bruce Chatwin's The Songlines, he wrote: "My aunt would bring an anthology of verse especially chosen for travelers, called “The Open Road”. It had a green buckram binding and a flight of gilded swallows on the cover.... Inside “The Open Road” there were black and white end-papers in the style of Aubrey Beardsley which showed a bright path twisting through pine woods. One by one, we went through every poem in the book."

It's impossible to not be excited - who'd have dared to hope for a new Dr. Seuss book 24 years after his death? And they found it in a box! (Did they find it with a fox?)

Finally, available today. http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=Seuss&bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&recentlyadded=all&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=%22What+Pet+Should+I+Get%22

Sarah Hilary’s Someone Else’s Skin wins the Theakstons Old Peculier crime novel of the year award. Not bad for a debut. http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=Sarah%20Hilary&pics=on&tn=Someone%20Else%27s%20Skin&cm_mmc=soc-_-googleplus-_-MERCH-_-link

I love this beautiful 1906 Dutch book about cocoa cultivation and preparation. You'd never know from the humble appearance of a cocoa bean, or a vanilla bean, or a coffee bean, what delicious possibilities they hold. Mmmm, chocolate.

Today would be George Orwell's 112th birthday. Look at this beautiful 1950 first edition copy of "Coming Up For Air" from Kurt Gippert, one of our ABAA member booksellers. Love it.
