Books to the Sky

Archive for November 2008

I recently came into a whole sack of romances from the late 70s, 80s, and 90s, so look out for recaps of those once November is over. The glee I feel cannot be described. I mean, the covers alone are priceless.

Anyway, some things to tide you over until I get to those:

+ The Guardian on the value of bad books.

+ Publisher’s weekly: The “clinch” cover is here to stay on romance novel covers. Readers really like these? I’m actually usually disinclined to buy books with covers like these.


Most of the staff here at Books to the Sky is busy with National Novel Writing Month, but have no fear, we’ll be back next month. And, because I’m a tease, I will tell you that I just came into a bunch of Christopher Pike books, including the Final Friends trilogy (one of my favorites as a tween) and some romance novels that were originally published in the late 70s. I’m irrationally excited!

See you in December!

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
--Arnold Lobel

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
--Groucho Marx
