Literary Spectrum: Greens, Yellows, Pinks Edition.












Who knew I had so few pink books? In the event that you missed the first installment of Literary Spectrum, it is here.

My week continues to be bothersome and hectic, but I'm surviving. I've gotten a few fantastic treats in the mail to keep me afloat, which I'm sure you'll hear more about soon. Have a great rest of the week!

Another great installment! I was surprised by the lack of pink books in my own collection... I have a lot of red ones though.

Where are all of the archaeology books? :)

I love your Literary Spectrum installments. And come to think of it, I don't believe I have many pink books either. Perhaps we don't read enough "chick lit" or something?!

BTW: What did you think of Krauss' _History of Love_? I'm just about halfway through it, but noticed you've taken it down off your sidebar.

Love the book shots - what a neat idea - funny how many different colors they come in!

Something that I never thought of doing! I appreciate the thought and care that goes into book bindings and jacket art, but I've never thought to group them by color. And of course, this is now making me want to visit the bookstore...

I love these Literary Spectrum posts. It makes me look at books in a completely different way :)

You and my ex (and thus formerly, I) have the exact same books. It's a bit bittersweet to see these titles that I no longer have at my fingertips! Nice shots. Love the gold of Midnight's Children.

I only have 2 pink hued volumes in my collection. Perhaps pink is not considered very literary? Or maybe I just don't buy pink books, not being a lover of pink and all...

Oh, how timely to see Mr. Vonnegut's name there. No more books from him. It's a tough day.

Ditto what Juile said. How sad.

Is Tales of the Genji a good read? I've been toying with reading it for a long time, but the public library has no copy.

You have Lawrence Durrell. You are very brave. I love his use of language but didn't have the mental stamina to read him. My dad, a literature professor excused me from guilt at not reading him. Of course, he does think I should re-read Moby Dick every few years!

Just yesterday I was going to comment about how great it was to see your collection of Vonnegut's books (I got busy and wasn't able to comment). I was probably going to tell you that you have inspired me to re-read his novels. Then today: sniff, sniff. I thought he'd be with us forever. I'm going to miss him.

It's interesting to see what ends up together. I may have to do this with my books this weekend.

Love that you do a Literary installment of Project Spectrum. Great idea! (And Midnight's Children is the best! It is one of my favorite books ever.)
