A Few Quick Reads (Too Tired to Blog)
It’s Sunday, a day of rest. For me it meant opening Dog Ears Books at 11 o’clock instead of 10 o’clock, but because we had an evening of riotous living on our front porch last night, with guests expected and unexpected, I am allowing myself a work morning in quiet recovery mode. No long reports today. No in-depth book reviews. This whole post will be a quick read, containing half a dozen or so images that are themselves quick reads. The old Northport sign above, the one on the Leland side of the M-22 loop, begins today’s tour. Next come the beautiful new blue signs—
One thing I can’t help reading in the bookstore: t-shirts worn by visitors. This one from the U.P. caught my fancy on Saturday.
After the post the other day with the elaborate bookplate, I dug out a couple other favorites to show here. One is simple and subtle but imaginative in its way; the second, wildly colorful, obviously denoted a child’s book.
There you have my world today. I finished The Dogs of Bedlam Farm yesterday and will be writing about that book one day soon. Not today, though. Today I plan to sit quietly and happily reading until customers provide a happy interruption.
