Epistolary Books And A Giveaway

November 6th, 2009

The much anticipated sequel to the extraordinarily riveting – Epistolary Books Part 1 – is up at Farmhouse Library. I have named it (trumpets peal) Epistolary Books Part 2! I know, I know, it is hard to see straight for the excitement! For those of you who on principle avoid sequels, can I tempt you with a cameo from Anthony Hopkins?


Is there a better actor on the face of the earth?

I think not.

There is a giveaway too!  (Of old, worn, used books… now who can stand to miss that!?!)

Visit Farmhouse Library and become enlightened!

    Rechelle -

    Have you read The Thirteenth Tale by Dianne Setterfield? Its good. Will you check it out and let me know what you think?


  • No, Mitzi I have not – but I am always looking for a good book.

  • OH, I loved 84 Charing Cross Road, fabulous film!!!

    I’ve been meaning to tell you also that I watched ARRANGED on your recommendation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a great film!

    And The Thirteenth Tale is really, really good, esp if you like the Bronte sisters (dark and brooding; there’s even a moor!”)


  • Kate:

    I could talk about books all day! Thanks for sharing.

  • 84 Charing Cross Road is one of my all time favorites films for it is so very adult and so very human. I’ve enjoyed visiting your blog.
    All the very best.

  • Shay W.:

    I liked Charing Cross Road (the book) and LOVED Letter from New York. I had no idea Hanff had written so many more books! Thanks for the knowledge, Rechelle. I have to disagree on Charing Cross Rd., the movie, though. I am not at all an Anne Bancroft fan, and it has taken quite some work to remove her bitter voice from my head while reading Hanff’s writing!

  • Bobbie Thompson:

    I love old books and old movies

  • “84 Charing Cross Road” is one of my go-to movies whenever I’m sick and snuffling on the couch. I agree that Anne Bancroft is the lesser light there–how can you compete with the wonder of a restrained Anthony Hopkins (see, also, “Remains of the Day”). For whatever reason, I always remember the quavery old man who comes in looking for the Archimboldo prints. So charming.
