Had a pretty good book-hunting weekend. This was my prize find, a virtually new copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Children of Hurin,” (Houghton Mifflin paperback edition, 2008). Edited by his son Christopher and illustrated by Alan Lee, it is the tale of the first Dark Lord, Morgoth and his battle against the Elves and the man Hurin.
I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this one. Thanks library book sale!
For those interested, Dorothy Parker, the legendary writer and reviewer from The New Yorker and Esquire, has a Facebook page which deals very generously with her quotes. Go and “Like” it now. I mean, LOVE it!
Read in the Wall Street Journal this weekend:
This year, e-books will account for more than half of my total sales, and I’m grateful for that. But in the back of my mind, I wonder whether a book is still a book if it is not a book.
Thriller Novelist Daniel Silva
Good question, don’t you think?
