If you visit Dog Eared Books on a regular basis or even read my blog posts, you would have noticed that I’m a big fan of kids books. Even though I left childhood behind some years ago, I find something so satisfying in reading a really good kids book every so often. It...

In the past, I was never sure about short stories. I understood (in theory) the beauty and style required, but I’m normally such a fast reader that -zip! - it was done just as I started to get into it. So I tried reading them slower and sometimes that worked. I could b...

Penguin Clothbound Classics are a classic example of this. I originally started collecting these editions purely for joy of running my fingers along their cloth spines every time I walked down the hallway at home. It’s rare for me to walk past without my eyes at least...

Most book-lovers poo-poo any film or television adaptation of their favourite books. It is objectively often true that adaptions are a much lesser version of the books, due to various factors. But I’m not here to take about the pros and cons of adapting books - I want...
