Friday Photo 26: Books That Are Big
I like big books. Big, thick door-stoppers. Books that routinely push my carry-on luggage over the weight limit at airline check-in counters. Books like these.
I like small thin books too. To be honest, I like books of all sorts.
But earlier today, whilst looking for something in the bedside table, the size of some of the books both on it and in it struck me. I figured they’d make a good composition for todays’ Friday Photo, and so here they are.
The big books in the picture are:
- Philip Pullman – His Dark Materials (The Complete Trilogy Edition)
- Terry Brooks – The Heritage of Shannara (The Complete Series)
- Neal Stephenson – Anathem
- Hunter S. Thompson – The Gonzo Papers Anthology
- Rosemary Jarski – Dim Wit – The Funniest, Stupidest Things Ever Said
- Stephen King – Duma Key
- Peter F. Hamilton – The Temporal Void
- Gregory David Roberts – Shantaram
Some, like Shantaram and The Gonzo Papers, probably warrant separate posts in their own right. I might do that sometime. When I’m finished reading.
