USED BOOKS TO BE ADORED ➕➕➕➕

I bought these five beauties from a sidewalk bookseller and feel so happy to have them. Please add your treasures and discoveries! 📖📚💛
  1. SPECIMEN DAYS, Walt Whitman
    "For the last half-hour a bird has persistently kept up a simple, sweet, melodious song, from the bushes. (I have a positive conviction that some of these birds sing, and others fly and flirt about here, for my especial benefit.)"
  2. PARABLES AND PARADOXES, Franz Kafka
    "Leopards break into the temple and drink to the dregs what is in the sacrificial pitchers; this is repeated over and over again; finally it can be calculated in advance, and it becomes a part of the ceremony."
  3. THE GREEK BUCOLIC POETS
    "I go a-courting of Amaryllis, and my goats they go browsing on along the hill . . . Beautiful Amaryllis, why peep you no more from your cave and call me in?"
  4. THE HISTORY AND TECHNIQUE OF LETTERING, Alexander Nesbitt
    "The best way really to understand script is to write it. Beginners should try broad pens in various sizes and with varying skews."
  5. THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, W.S. Merwin
    "The summer morning light through the big trees surrounds the dark branches with a radiance that is never entirely still."
