Booknote: Tarot Cards
Tarot Cards - Isabella Alston,Kathryn Dixon

This is another small book, an art book of 95 pages showing a variety of Tarot card decks. It's a very nice book to look at. For Tarot card deck collectors, this book may incite their collecting lust a bit. The book starts with an introduction that sets up the book and gives a brief history of Tarot cards. This book looks at Tarot cards as an art form.

 

Check out the rest of my review at The Itinerant Librarian by clicking the link above. On a side note, the photo that BookLikes is using here is different than the cover of the edition I have, which is shown on my blog post.

Booknote: The Public Library
The Public Library: A Photographic Essay -

This is a beautiful book, and it is one that will likely go on my list of best reads for 2014. For librarians, especially public librarians, and for fans of libraries, this is a book that will warm the heart.

 

Click the link above to read the full review. As always, comments are welcomed. By the way, I think it is very appropriate that I borrowed this book from my local public library.

Booknote: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

This was a book that I really wanted to like given all the positive media and reviews, but I found it to be slow reading, especially at the beginning of the book.

 

I have posted my full review of this on my blog, The Itinerant Librarian. Click on the link to read the full review and check it out. My review is a bit mixed. While I liked it (barely), I can certainly see the appeal factors, and I bet other readers out there will enjoy it better. So check it out and decide. If you do, let me know. Comments are open.
