American Gothic! Now you're talking my language; let me think and post something tomorrow or Friday (I'm off to Cirencester in a couple of hours).

Black Magic Cat

Diana Birchall

B-but what happened next to Stoner? I'm at the edge of my seat!



I have received the book. Thank you so much ( I have written a post about it also). It is the perfect book for me as I have been thinking about buying the book because of the anniversary (It deserves a reread) but then I would look at my stacks of library/own books that need to be read and kept putting it off.



Hm...I'd have to think about this. Now, however, I feel like reading Stoner, too.

Everyone should read Stoner. Such a good book. It is nice to see it making the rounds in the blogosphere. I am currently reading Whipple's collection of short stories so thinking of one image so sum it all up might be somewhat difficult. But I think I should try, it sounds like fun.

Thomas at My Porch

Okay, I posted mine!

Desperate Reader

I love this idea but am having to give it some real thought. I will be back with ideas soon!


Clever and fun idea! Mine is up too for The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman.


Nice idea. Mine's at -- Sulari Gentill's A Few Right Thinking Men.


For a couple of years I had a print of American Gothic over my desk, so I'm rather fond of it. Since we moved building, though, "my" painting has been changed for one by Tom Thomson.

My own books-in-pictures post (on Elizabeth Goudge's The Herb of Grace) is here:

Dark Puss

My choice is inspired by Colette's Ripening Seed.

Desperate Reader

Better late than never (I hope) I've just posted my choice which was inspired by reading Wilkie Collins

Lovely and surprisingly hard challange.
