Books About Books

As a book addict, I’m always on the look out for my next fix. Good news–I found a new supplier, Flashlight Worthy Books. The best feature of this website is its quirky lists. Catagorising by genre is hit or miss with so many books (especially the ones I like) straddling a few genres. The lists here are spot-on: “Books for Culinary Kids,” “Books about Books,” and “Favourite Reissues of Neglected Books.” Wow, wow, wow.


I’ve already discovered a year’s worth of reading. Today’s best find was a book devoted to the settings of famous novels. Novel Destinations shares tidbits and travel tips about literary locales such Austen’s Bath, Dicken’s London, Alcott’s New England, and Hemingway’s favourite hideout in Key West.

My favourite “genre” could be called Manor/Mystery/Romance. I love stories set in sprawling old houses, and I’ve read quite a few. I have just discovered my next procrastination project: compiling a list of Gothic novels set in unforgettable houses. Watch out for it on Flashlight Worthy dot com. With any luck, they’ll like my idea!
