Construction Site Fence, College of Charleston Library, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok


For all of you who love books, our lovely and talented daughter recently started a book blog, chelseareadsbooks. She has a B.A. in English with a concentration in Fiction Writing and is a true blue book lover. I think you will enjoy her posts.

  4. doug: here's a message for your daughter. i can't leave it at her blog because of the way she's set it up but wanted to leave a comment for her anyway.

    there's a new collection called WHAT YOU WISH FOR coming out in the fall. it's totally a labor of love for all participants. no money has changed hands. all funds raised will be used to build libraries for darfuri refugees in the camps.

    my favorite old school typewriter was an underwood. but this one is mighty fine.

    there's also a young adult book you might like looking at. WRITE NAKED by Peter Gould is about a boy who carries home an old manual typewriter from a yard sale and how that one exchange begins an odyssey of growth.

  14. I like your shot Doug, as Christopher said...very cool.

    http://visionandverb.com/ is written by "Women of a certain age", and mostly I suspect without literary training...but there's many interesting philosophical posts that Chelsea may also like to read. I'll pop by every now and then and meanwhile, good luck to her.
