Zadie Smith’s Feel Free is a book of Essays from 2018.  I especially enjoyed her essays about art.  They are really the best writing about the work of individual contemporary artists  I have read. Maybe because they feel personal and are easy to relate to. Although I didn’t know of the artists she wrote about, by the time I finished the essay I wanted to see their work in person.   We’re including Intimations also by Smith with Feel Free.  It’s a  small volume of essays written during and about the pandemic.

(This book is sold.) I found the copy of “When The Trees Say Nothing” by Thomas Merton in Jon’s office when we cleaned it up last week.  I have a copy of the book that I keep by my Blogging Chair.  I’m don’t read Merton the way Jon does.  But this book, which has excerpts from Merton’s Journals about nature, touches my heart and inspires me.

I have to write a bit about Tia Williams A Love Song For Ricki Wilde because I love it so much.   It is a love story that takes place in present day Harlem and during the Harlem Renaissance.  It’s also the story of a young woman who realizes she has to leave her family in order to fulfill her creative dream of opening a florist.   It’s filled with history and magic and still makes me smile when I think of it.  I could also relate to it.  That need to leave a bad situation, even if it is family,  in order to become who we really are.

(This book is sold)James Serpell is Jon’s favorite writer about dogs and he feels this is the best book about dogs.  We found this extra copy of The Domestic Dog in Jon’s office also.  It’s in excellent condition and sells for $39 or more on Amazon.  Since it was an expensive book we are charging $20 for it.

I didn’t read the last book, Fortunes Bazar, The Making of Hong Kong by Vaudine England.   But you can click on the title below, all you can with the other books, to read a review of it.  It too is in excellent condition.
