April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

a treasure


I have to share. I found this treasure on eBay last week. It is a self-portrait May Sarton did for Burt Britton, who worked for the Strand and asked authors to draw him self-portraits, which he eventually published in a book, Self-Portrait: Book People Picture Themselves. I didn't even know this existed until last week, so to have stumbled across it on eBay and to now own it only makes me a little excited.
