Another Christopher Morley fan is born

A new bookish blog is coming out of Cambridge, Massachusetts - Frognall Dibdin's Shelves - isn't that a terrific name! And it looks as if we've gained another Morley appreciation society member. Welcome to the club, it's small but has such depth... actually, kidding aside, if you spend much time at all reading books about books, Morley's name is bound to crop up in very short order. He knew so many book people in the first half of the twentieth century - booksellers new and rare, publishers, editors, authors, journalists, auctioneers, collectors, readers. A true man of letters. But I digress, as I often do. Welcome to the new blogger.

it seems to be gone already
or hacked
perhaps they are under constuction
Hmm. The link works for me, but there is a google ad messing up his format. Scroll down to see his posts...
Thank you, Sarah, for passing along the link to the newish Frognall Dibdin's Shelves blog. What a terrific find! As always, you continue to educate, entertain, and inform. Your blog entries may be few and far between nowadays, but they are always filled with gems. Happy New Year!
Thanks, Anon - though in this case I can't take any credit, because Frognall found me first!

In the new year, more blog posts. I have been reading a lot lately - just not the usual mammoth winter reading project I usually set sail into this time of year. Oh, and I am still selling books... Lots to talk about, but the days are very full at the moment. Oddly so, considering I am semi-retired, as it were.
