Sunday Salon ~ red books

Display window at STL Books, Kirkwood, Missouri, February 8, 2014
When I decided to share this Valentine bookstore display photo from Joy's Book Blog, I looked at the bookshelves around my computer to see if I have any "red" books.  Several practically jumped off the shelves at me, saying, "Me, me, me!"  Have you read any of these red books?

That's a lot of red books! It's a great color for covers. Looking around me, I have:

Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell
Essays of E.B. White
Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne

...and that's just the first three I picked up! There are more to choose from.

I loved the red book display.. I hope to steal this if I ever get a bricks & mortar.

I'm going through Disciple too!

Good for you, Laura, to be willing to commit to the 34 weeks of studying Disciple. I taught Disciple to a small group last year, about the fourth time I've taught it since the early 1990s.

I haven't read any of them, but to this day if I see the "Face on a Milk Carton" movie on TV I will stop and watch it.

Wow ...that's a lot of red books. I have loaded bookshelves yet only found three "red" books. They were all in my Dicken's collection, "Bleak House", "The Fireside Book of Christmas Stories" and "Charles" by Victoria Lincoln.

I love the look of the red books! I read Erma Bombeck decades ago (and liked it). My favorite recent red book is Forgive Me Leonard Peacock
