The 4th of July was a very dark and rainy day here this year, so I spent a good part of yesterday reading lots of different things. Andy Miller, author of the highly entertaining The Year of Reading Dangerously: How Fifty Great Books Saved My Life, was tweeting about the coverage of some vintage Graham Greene editions at Existential Ennui.

My grandparents adored Graham Greene, as do I, and I vaguely remember seeing at least a couple of these editions about over the years. But I do not have them. Which means another family member does. Which means some begging, or trading, might be in order. In a family of bibliophiles these things can get tricky. But these covers are such perfect wrappers for the content they hold! This might be the new collection pursuit.
Take a look at a few more before you click over to Existential Ennui to read about the editions in detail. You might want to look through the rest of the site as well. Some lovely things there.
What books do you collect? Or wish to collect? And can you let me know if you see any of these Greene editions about?
