Well my brand new happy place is in Roger Mifflin's two story bookshop in Gissing Street in Brooklyn with the living uarters in the rear of the second floor and after a wonderful meal cooked by his wife Helen in front of a cozy fire in the grate with a glass of brandy in my hand I listen as Roger reads Dickens a

The Haunted Bookshop

READ The Haunted Bookshop õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Is too distracted to notice and Gilbert has no choice but to take the young woman’s safety into his own hands Her life and the Mifflins’ may depend on it   With a deep respect for the art of bookselling and as much flair for drama as romance Christopher Morley has crafted a lively humorous tale for book lovers everywher. I seem to be the only person to like Morley s first book Parnassus on Wheels better than the seuel I think it was mainly that I enjoyed Helen as a POV character better than Aubrey who I didn t much care for I mean I get that his callow youth ness was deliberate but I didn t care much about him nor was I rooting for him to get the girl You can do better Titania The German spy plot was pretty silly although it probably held up better in the WWI era It was fun though and all the parts about books were good The Rescued up better in the WWI era It was fun though and all the parts about books were good

CHARACTERS Ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Christopher Morley

READ The Haunted Bookshop õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Volumes disappear and reappear on the shelves but the ghosts of literature aren’t the only mysterious visitors in Roger Mifflin’s haunted bookshop   Mifflin who hawked books out of the back of his van in Christopher Morley’s beloved Parnassus on Wheels has finally settled down with his own secondhand bookstore in Brook. Books are the immortality of the race the father and mother of most that is worthwhile cherishing in our hearts To spread good books about to sow them on fertile minds to propagate understanding and a carefulness of life and beauty isn t that high enough mission for a man The bookseller is the real Mr Valiant For Truth Mr Roger Mifflin Proprietor of The Haunted Bookshop I am wild for bookstores in particular used bookstores In fact I can no longer visit a place no matter how small the village or urban the setting without seeking out at least one of these delightful sanctuaries Honestly no trip is complete without a stop and at least one purchase of a new to me hardcover or paperback for my home shelf And while my family may roll their eyes as mine sparkle in anticipation of a uick sojourn they are still very supportive of my obsession and I have to thank them dearly for that While I seek out a treasure they are typically up to some sort of antics amongst the deserted aisles I like to track down a piece by a local author if possible otherwise anything from my list will suit If you happen to be haunting one of these establishments as well you would likely see me on my phone trying to access my Goodreads accountNow if an actual bookstore visit is not feasible then reading about a bookstore may be second best There are a lot of choices out there right now for books about books or novels about these sort of shops but this is one of the earliest works out there that I have come across personally Christopher Morley wrote this utterly charming novel The Haunted Bookshop in 1918 Don t be misled by the title however because you won t get any spine tingling sensations or need to stay up at night with the lights on after reading this one If you do find a goose bump or two those would be likely due to the thought of all those books You see the haunting in this novel is of a different sort from anything you might read by Shirley Jackson or Stephen King or insert favorite horror writer here As Roger Mifflin the very enlightened and often witty proprietor of the shop states That s why I call this place the Haunted Bookshop Haunted by the ghosts of the books I haven t read Poor uneasy spirits they walk and walk around me There s only one way to lay the ghost of a book and that is to read itRoger and wife Helen run this cozy little store in Brooklyn When a young advertising agent by the name of Aubrey Gilbert walks into the shop to solicit his services much to Mifflin s dismay as he is opposed to paying for such a thing when the books should speak for themselves a friendship develops This is shortly followed by the employment of a new assistant in the bookstore the lovely and affluent Titania The addition of these two into Mifflin s little circle enables him to expound on his love of literature his ideas regarding booksellers his thoughts on the evils and futility of war and his desire for world peace most of which can be accomplished by widespread book reading naturally Printer s ink has been running a race against gunpowder these many many years Ink is handicapped in a way because you can blow up a man with gunpowder in half a second while it may take twenty years to blow him up with a book But the gunpowder destroys itself along with its victim while a book can keep on exploding for centuriesThere is a mystery to be found here as well when a copy of one of Mifflin s books disappears and reappears several times and can even be seen in the hands of some unlikely readers Mifflin of course is simply delighted to find that someone would wish to read a book badly enough that he would steal in order to do so Aubrey Gilbert however suspects there may be to the story than this Having become instantly enad with Titania he feels it is his duty to protect her at all costs from any potential dangers lurking in the corners of the shop whether she feels the need for such care or not Gilbert is no Sherlock Holmes however so things get a bit sticky when he puts his very amateur sleuthing skills to work The mystery was intriguing and not uite what I expected This was a fun romp through the neighborhoods of Brooklyn culminating in an adventurous last scene You may even bite a nail here if you feel so inclinedI thoroughly enjoyed this tale of a very affable bookseller I wouldn t mind sitting down with Mr Mifflin and having him read a bit of Dickens out loud to me over a cup of tea He was a charming companion and one with whom I can spend some time in Parnassus on Wheels I ve apparently read these two books out of order but I don t think that spoils things too much I look forward to another chat with both Roger and Helen next time around There is no one so grateful as the man to whom you have given just the book his soul needed and he never knew it
