The Shabby Sunday meme was created by Mischenko over at Read Rant Rock & Roll blog, which I love! I first noticed the Shabby Sunday posts last week when I came across the brilliant post showcasing Call Of The Wild, by Jack London. I fell in love with the idea of vintage/childhood features, and so naturally I had to join in.
I’ll periodically be joining here and there on Sundays. I’m sure it’ll be random and unexpected, like lightning. Because, well lets just say I suck at commitment.
Anyhow, back to my Shabby choice!!!
I was looking through some paperbacks in my house and came across this wonderful Patrick E. McManus collection! They’re actually my husbands books, and he was apparently obsessed with them as a teenager. (How funny is it that we’re considering our teen years as vintage worthy now!? And, how old do I feel while writing is? LOL) I’ve read a few of the short stories within the pages of these strangely unique covers. I was somewhat impressed. Not as much as my husband clearly, but I liked them nonetheless. I feel like Patrick has an bit of an ego to go along with his dry humor. I can get past it, because some things he writes are actually pretty funny.
The reason I’m choosing them today, is because they’re original covers! Patrick has long since made changes, making this particular collection within my physical grasp that much more awesome! And, also because my husband loves them and I love him… Sooooooo win win!!
