I Knew It Was Too Good To Be True

The title of this post refers to the fact that tonight I ran across another books and reading blog called "Time Enough At Last."  Shoot!  I suppose it was inevitable, given the significance of the title.  But the good news is, that other blog went defunct in March 2006, so it's high time the title was used again!  Onward and upward!

Speaking of onward, I simply cannot wait to use this picture:

Probably some of you are familiar with this image, which is from the famous WPA posters collection from the late 1930's and early 1940's.  A good many of them have to do with reading, and I love them all, but especially this one.  To me, it perfectly captures the feeling you get as the weather turns a little colder (and here in South Mississippi, the occurrence of cooler weather in October is a cause for general rejoicing) and you want nothing more than to be left alone with a good book, spooky or otherwise.

I like this one for September too, but it's too late to use it (sigh):

What kinds of things do you associate with Autumn and reading?

  1. Found your blog via the Classics Circuit...interesting that you have a post about WPA posters!

    I had thought that the WPA only built bridges and the like -- until I recently read "America Eats!" about how they researched food traditions.

    Apparently, thethe WPA also had employees design cool posters, too!
