    • I know how you feel! It was really hard limiting it to just three showcase items but, after going a bit wild with The Literary Gift Company two days ago, I promised myself I’d be good this time!

  1. What a great site! I love how it’s organized. A person could spend a LOT of time here…

    I think my fave is “Wretched Writing: A Compendium of Crimes against the English Language”. Also, “Why does the World Exist: An Existential Mystery” sounds good, too!

    I am really enjoying this shopping series. These are sites I NEVER would have stumbled upon on my own.

    • About ten years ago, an acquaintance introduced me to Bas Bleu and I have never looked back. If you become a member (which is not necessary, but it is affordable) you get a discount on most items. If you end up buying a lot from them over the course of a year it is totally worth the initial outlay. Even though I did not highlight any books, they have the most wonderfully curated selection of amazing books new and old. I treasure every volume I’ve ever purchased from them, no lie! Bas Bleu is one of the only catalogues I enjoy getting in the mail. It is a treat every time!

      I am glad you are enjoying this series. It is about to wrap up-2 or 3 more to go, I think-but it has been fun. I am glad I have been able to introduce great sites to my readers.
