Paying attention to Neglected Books

While trolling around for older books I could suggest to community book groups I recalled a book blog I enjoyed very much. The Neglected Books Page. A recent visit reminded me of a classic author I’ll be sure to dust off and start promoting to library patrons.

This blog has been in operation since 2006 and takes pride in remembering forgotten books that deserve a longer shelf life. Neglected Books were recalling Jetta Carleton’s Moonflower Vine long before the reissue of this popular book group title. They’re also keeping Edward Mustard Stewart, Louis Auchincloss, and Michael Frayn on the readers’ radar.

But the most recently posted author profile of Christopher Morley is the the reason I’ll stop being neglectful of this delightful resource for book group leaders. There are plenty of titles here worthy of a dusting off, a discussion, and a boost in circulation before heading to that great library in the sky.
