The One about Miller’s Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2018-2019

When it comes to antique handbooks and price guides, Judith Miller’s “Antique Handbook & Price Guide” are one of the best out there. With that being said, it’s not perfect nor will it please everyone, including long time Antique Handbook & Price Guide readers. The reason being is that with each handbook and price guide, there are things touched upon in those years, that are not touched on in another […]

The One about Vivienne Gucwa’s “NY in the Snow” Photo Book

As a traveler who loves to visit locations in different seasons and as a photographer who loves to capture city life, one thing that I have not yet experienced is snow in New York or the East Coast.

The One about Richard Sandomir’s “The Pride of the Yankees: Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper, and the Making of a Classic”

I’m a huge Yankees fan, literally have a shrine in one room with autographs from famous Yankees from past to present. And I also have a few items honoring the legendary Lou Gehrig.

And while my library consists of many art books, graphic design, business, travel, cinema, etc.  The books that I enjoy are comic books. While I haven’t purchased a comic book since my […]

The One about All My Books

Books…I can’t quit you! I have put a lot of my books in storage and as I know it would make my life more simpler to go digital and alleviate this side of my living room that makes it look like I’m a cinema/business/art book hoarder… There is something about having a real book (that you really like and want to own and display) as opposed to a digital book.

The One about “Camp Sunset: A Modern Camper’s Guide to the Great Outdoors”

When it comes to camping, I know nothing about it. Just the basic things you pick up on television. But as my parents are in their retirement age and my father had purchased an RV, he would like the family to join them on camping trips. Needless to say, camping is something I’ve never been interested in but I figured, that I’ve never tried it, might as well experience it. […]

For those not familiar with Lonely Planet, for the last few years it was owned by BBC Worldwide until it was sold to NC2 Media in 2013. The Lonely Planet Ireland guide is over 700 pages of information of […]
