Book finds another fan

I recommended a book in a blog posted at the beginning of last week.

It is a work of fiction called “The Time Cellar” by Marc Emory and has a numismatic component weaved into the plot that is both essential and quite satisfying for a collector-reader without becoming boring for noncollectors.

One reader at least was moved to action by my words and he wrote me about it. I will share it below:

“A thousand thanks for recommending the book, ‘The Time Cellar,’ in your daily blog a couple days ago.

“I immediately downloaded it onto my Kindle and couldn’t stop reading the book until I was finished.

“What makes this email to you even more relevant is that I haven’t actually ‘read’ a book in decades. I do listen to audio books at the rate of 25 to 30 a year, mostly while I take my two-mile-a-day walk and also while searching coin rolls.

“I got out of the habit of reading books once I was introduced to the audio versions. That way I can do two things at once as opposed to ‘reading,’ which is a single task situation.

“This was not available in the typical audio version unless you consider Kindle’s automated voice reader – Not!

“I found the book exceptional and not just because I’m a coin collector and love nice wines, but the story was really quite good – make that excellent!”

How about that? Now there are two of us who like the book have written about it. Perhaps if a third one can be found they will make a movie out of it.

If you want to consider the book, the link to the Kindle version is: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OOEYOD2
