"Reunited, and it feels so good
Reunited 'cause we understood
There's one perfect fit
And, sugar, these BOOKS are it
We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited, hey, hey!"

And what's on the other side ......

Happy to add a few 1950's Modern Library classics to my collection.
The covers are so gorgeous.
The Leaves of grass is one of my favourites.

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering... these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love... these are what we stay alive for."
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I traipsed around a few bookstores in Denver today, on one of my days off.
Here's the classics section from one shop.
It's so weird how the books know my name, the credit card number, the expiration date, and that three-digit secret code on the back of the card.

"Find a girl who reads. You’ll know she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she has found the book she wants."

I spotted this fantastic Shakespeare Modern Library set at the eclectic Turn a Page Book Shop, in Aurora, Colorado.
I thought it would be a great addition to the home library.
It's a 1959 vintage, in great condition for the age.

"Brevity is the soul of wit."
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

But sometimes more is better, Mr. Shakespeare: "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father refuse thy name, thou art thyself thou not a montegue, what is montegue? tis nor hand nor foot nor any other part belonging to a man
What is in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,
So Romeo would were he not Romeo called retain such dear perfection to which he owes without that title,
Romeo, Doth thy name!
And for that name which is no part of thee, take all thyself."
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

What's your favourite Shakespeare play?
Have a great Sunday!!
