• Welcome!

    The purpose of this site is to aquaint you with our imprint and to tell you about the books we sell. In an excess of reticence, perhaps, we keep the commercial pitch behind the green tabs above. Using them you can learn about us, our products, and other matters.

    What you see in front of you is our blog—a free-wheeling discussion about books, reading, literature, language, and much else likely to interest our customers—people who read books. Please comment and participate.

    And we'd really love it if you would buy our books.

Reader’s Digest – A Great Article

We mentioned Reader’s Digest briefly in another post a while ago. Today (thanks to Brigitte Darnay) we came across Peter Applebome’s wonderful article on what that magazine had been and has become in the New York Times. It’s entitled “Reader’s Digest and Life in these United States,” and is available online here. You may have to be a subscriber to the paper, however, to access the story. In a way it is the story of Giant Planet—and what can happen to such bodies as time does its relentless work.
