The world continues spinning whether I like it or not, and to that end, I have a couple of announcements to make.
I am moving this week, hence the 1910s change of address card pictured, found on Etsy by my mom. My current lease is expiring, and I’m staying in Ann Arbor to remain close to my part-time jobs while I continue my national search for full-time employment. I’ll be moving across town to a quieter location, and am looking forward to the new apartment. One of this week’s challenges is how to pack a bunch of rare books securely for the move, given that it’s a local move and there is currently a ten percent chance of rain on moving day.
My next set of announcements concern this blog! In the upcoming weeks and throughout this fall, I’m hoping to make a couple of changes to thegoodbadbook. The first change is that I finally figured out how to set the blog’s time stamps to E.S.T.
Next up is the blog banner picture. My original picture is a representation of my collection in December 2010. My collection has evolved a lot since that point!
The third change I’m really thrilled to announce: thegoodbadbook will be advertising for Yesterday’s Gallery and Babylon Revisited Rare Books! I’ve mentioned Babylon Revisited Rare Books before, as they are the go-to source for pre-World War Two fiction in dust jacket. The sidebar image link to their homepage should work by the time this post is published (go on, click it!), and each of my novel posts will include a relevant link. I’m especially excited about these post-relevant links, as they’ll connect the books discussed with copies available for purchase, as well as works from the same author, or similar genre fiction.
More changes are in the works, etc. etc. It is also my goal to publish my mom’s birthday post before her next birthday. Stayed tuned and thanks for reading!
And now, a tribute to the old banner, the un-cropped version:
