I am looking for information about a book titled Rhyme Without Reason by William Roughead. It is a 1st edition published in 1901. I can find nothing on it anyplace on line including the obvious book search sites. Has anyone ever heard of this book or have information about it? All I can find is a mention in Wikipedia. Thanks
An interesting article detailing some of the restoration processes used...
"Inside a sophisticated lab across the University of Virginia’s Grounds from her library office, Eliza Gilligan wages a quiet war against time. As the book conservator for University Library Collections, Gilligan is tasked with protecting some of U.Va.’s most valuable historical resources.
Her latest restoration project pieces together an important part of Virginia’s past.
A two-volume botanical guide, “Figures of the Most Beautiful, Useful Plants Described in the Gardener’s Dictionary,” written by Philip Miller and published in 1760, is part of a large collection of rare Colonial-era books that were donated to U.Va. in the late 1970s and early 1980s"
Just got an email from ebay.
"With the holiday selling season right around the corner, we're proud to announce the following pricing updates for eBay Stores subscribers, which will take effect on October 15, 2015 at 12 AM PT: Basic-level subscribers will—starting October 15—enjoy an increased allotment of zero insertion fee listings: a total of 200 free fixed price listings per month. And—for all eBay Stores subscribers—the monthly allotment of 100 additional zero insertion fee auction-style listings will be extended to apply to listings in both Collectibles and Fashion categories.
People without a store are up to 50 free listings again.
One of Satnrose's hints was: "Know the release dates of upcoming movies which are based on books. Schedule your auctions [listings] of such books to cash in on the pre-release publicity of the movie."
This works not just for movies but also for TV shows or TV movies of the week. I thought a thread (as opposed to individual threads) when people hear of book-related movies or TV shows would be beneficial if people are so inclined to add to it.
My kick-off of a "Heads-Up on Book- Related Movies and TV Programs" is Nancy Drew.
Today I finally sold a Lot of 10 Nancy Drew books (1-10 Flashlight Mystery) that I have had listed since April finally sold. I had originally bought them for my cousin's daughters but then found older editions to send them so I listed the lot. I had reduced the price of them at the start of summer thinking it might entice a parent to buy the lot for summer reading for a daughter, but that didn't happen.
Call it a concidence or not, but today the Nancy Drew books sold at 7:38 PM EDT, less than an hour (6:45 PM EDT) after an entertainment article about an upcoming Nancy Drew series appeared on my google news page! They are going to California, but not Hollywood! lol
Nancy Drew series in the works from Grey's producers
CBS developing grown-up version of iconic sleuth
Classic teen sleuth Nancy Drew could get her own TV show — except now she’s going to be all grown up.
The pitch: “A contemporary take on the character from the iconic book series. Now in her 30s, Nancy is a detective for the NYPD where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world.
If greenlit, it’s easy to imagine Nancy Drew being paried with another CBS show starring an iconic female crime fighter, Supergirl (should the latter receive a second season order).
Nancy Drew’s legacy extends back to the first novels based on the character in 1930 and was created by Hardy Boys author Edward Stratemeyer. She’s been adapted for films and TV shows numerious times over the years, most recently a 2007 film starring Emma Roberts . . . There was also a 2002 TV movie with Maggie Lawson in the title role and the The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries TV series that ran on ABC from 1977-79.
Famous successful women ranging from Barbara Bush to Hillary Clinton have cited the character as an inspiration.
