ROAD TRIP READING





Bought this book on sale at Bookbase on Florida Rd, Durban for R5. Needless to say I was sold by the cover. Penned by Russian author Anton Chekov, the book contains two short stories and is part of a series of 70 short story titles published in 2005 by Penguin for their 70th Anniversary celebration. Other renowned authors in the series are Roald Dahl, George Orwell, Hunter S. Thompson, Zadie Smith, Noam Chomsky, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and John Steinbeck. Scanned the net and found other great covers shown above.

The man's maustache makes it look like he's just eaten one of the little birds.

George Orwell is lovely.

Not sure if I should visit Bookbase or not. I already have more vintage books than I know where to put them - but I do love them so much! My main source is the hospice in Pinetown and also SPCA in Kloof!
