Speaking of gorgeous books

… and speaking of gorgeous books, how about Come, Thou Tortoise by Jessica Grant, which entered my life today. And I knew as soon as I saw it, because these days a fabulous book cover design often has these two words behind it: Kelly Hill. I can’t wait to start reading. The book also has me reflecting on literary tortoises, which are really quite common– Lightning from Arcadia springs to mind from the start, because it’s fresh there, and I do know that they came up in Woolf’s essays, if not her fiction (which I’m not sure of). There are more, I’m sure, and one day I’ll write the definitive guide.

    I can spot a Kelly Hill book at 50 paces in a book store. They’re enchanting.

    It is gorgeous, isn't it.

    I loved this book. And she is a funny lady. There's a Q&A coming soon at ExperienceTO–I'll send a link when it's up.

    Kelly Hill is amazing. And so nice to know the book’s contents are as great as their packaging. I’m really looking forward to this one.
