1 Greene, Bob; Fulford, D. G. To Our Children's Children; Preserving Family Histories for Generations to Come
0385467974 / 9780385467971; Long lives yield many treasures: Pictures, keepsakes, property or savings, the standard currencies of inheritance passed from generation to generation. But there is another legacy, more precious and often lost - memories, the closely held images of people, places, and things that are the blueprint of life. This book, created by syndicated columnist Bob Green and his sister D. G. Fulford, forms an attractive and engaging guidebook that makes recording a personal history as uncomplicated and easy as writing a letter. Following a brief introduction to set the tone of fond remembrance, chapters of questions, designed to elicit answers that will form the patchwork of a personal history are set in chapters. Interesting to write using this guide, your memories will form a lasting keepsake for generations to come. Book is off white quarter cloth with gold printing on the spine. ; 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall

2 Hamilton, John Maxwell Casanova Was a Book Lover: and Other Naked Truths and Provocative Curiosities about the Writing, Selling, and Reading of Books
0141002336 / 9780141002330; Very Advance Praise for Casanova: "I laughed my head off. " Marie Antoinette. Abraham Lincoln said "Can't wait for the play!" Everyone knows which books people buy, but who knows which books people steal? In this irreverent analysis of the book industry, John Maxwelll Hamilton - a longtime journalist and public radio commentator - answers this question and many more, proving that the best way to study books is not to take them too seriously. He provides a rich history of the book - from the early day when monks laboriously hand-copied texts to the recent tidal wave of movie tie-ins - and gives a succinct overview of the state of the industry today. Throughout, Hamilton peppers his prose with spicy tidbits of information that will fascinate bibliophiles everywhere. 351 pages, including appendices A, B and C (great information, but you'll have to read the book to find out what they are) , endnotes, and an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
