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.

1951 Gnome Press editions of Asimov's Foundation trilogy - signed/inscribed first editions. So gorgeous! If you could afford any edition of any book, what would you buy?

Percy Maylam's original "The Hooden Horse" (1909) - only 303 copies printed. Between us the Hoodeners already own several copies... but we need to preserve our heritage. If only they didn't all cost $200+

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."

Happy 86th birthday to Norton Juster! The Phantom Tollbooth is a wonderful book that stands the test of time.
