Readings Has You Covered

Belated Happy New Year Greetings dear readers! I have been taking an extended holiday from posting in my SNAP journals, but this week I am back.

As happens every year with increasing difficulty, I went on my usual hunt for a wall calendar in early January. It seems not many people use them these days, because very few bookstores sell them anymore, at least here in Melbourne. I travelled quite a distance on the word of a work colleague, who said the bookstore Readings had a wide range (Readings won Bookstore of the Year at the London Book Fair in 2016).

Happily, my friend was correct, and I finally settled on ‘Vintage Book Cover Posters’, culled from the New York Library. The calendar is published by Catch Publishing, and is printed on nice uncoated, textured stock, which is always one of my essential criteria. Unfortunately, no information on the books or the illustrators is included. It is certainly a pleasant calendar to while away the year with however, and is a nice segue from last year's calendar.

Happy March!
