Discovering New Talent

I love when I get the opportunity to discover new talent. Okay, maybe I didn't discover them, but I did just recently find them.

One such talent is Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore (his debut novel!). I may have found a new favorite book.                              
                                         
Mr. Penumbra's is a book lover's dream, a bibliophile's paradise. It references other books, drops hints and clues to an even greater book loving group while incorporating quirky characters (I am Ms. Lapin.), the Google campus, art, bookstores, and a quest. How can anything get any better than that? Don't just take my word for it, check out the reviews and comments on Good Reads. The book also glows in the dark! There's nothing I don't like about this book!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves books or loves reading books (and yes, there is a difference).

I personally love books on so many levels. From reading to the way they are made, the quality of paper, the illustrations, type setting, the endpapers, and so much more.




To me, marbled endpapers are to swoon for,









      a deckle edge is almost
      orgasmic--almost!








I love to hold a used, but well-loved book in my hands and imagine all the other hands who've held it before me, all the other eyes that have read the words, the fingers that have traced a particularly intriguing line. A book with a well-broken in spine shows the love given it when it was first purchased. A book losing its pages shows me that it wasn't taken care of properly by someone who either didn't know or (dare I think it?) didn't care.

What was your favorite book of 2013?

P.S. I have another previously undiscovered talent that I hope to bring to you in 2014. This one is totally my discovery, and doesn't have to do with books, but will captivate and fascinate you in addition to leaving you in awe of his talent.

Torture, isn't it?

I just love loving books and so appreciate when I read someone who feels the same way. So many of us are writers and often it's all about 'read me--do this--like that' that we forget why it was we got into this whole mess. I love Mr Punumbra too, what a wonderful breath of fresh air it was. I'm going to have to think hard about what my favorite of last year was. This year I'm loving Charles de Lint although he's been around for a while he's new to me!

I like the paper-eared books:) They are so nice and it shows that it's interesting and read many times. Good luck in opening new talets.

I believe that a winner does hard work and when he or she won it. He knows better than others how much he or she did work hard for it.

Thanks tammysetzerdenton for sharing your thoughts and you said exactly right that will be good for our kids. I think so that seasonal and holiday book is good for the kids than any other things and that's why I am encouraging you to publish more like this. Good work

Nice post. I learn some thing very complicated on diverse blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to learn to read content using their company writers and rehearse something from their site. I’d want to use some with all the content in this little blog regardless of whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide link on your own internet blog. Thank you sharing.
