www.eighthdaybooks.com

This is, far and away, the coolest book catalog I have ever received. Go to the web site, browse, but for sure, get the catalog... then be tempted by the best collection of literature, theology, and philosophy you've ever seen promoted in one place.

  1. Clint,

    Just got mine in the mail a couple of days ago. It's probably the "slowest read" of a catalog I've had in a long, long time. Lots of items for my "coveting" list...

    Enjoy!

  2. Exactly. It's like getting a free book in the mail. I love their mini-reviews and conversational style, and of course, since their sensibility so closely matches mine (they like Wendell Berry AND Paul Evdokimov), it's almost unbelievable.

  3. I'm lucky. These guys are locatd in my city, and it is a real joy to go down to the shop on a Saturday afternoon and just browse.

  4. Daniel, do tell more. What is the store like, how did the staff decide to start such a store? Are they affiliated with a congregation close by? Glad you can visit there, and if I'm ever in town, I will as well.
