Tiny Treasures: Books You Have to Dig a Little to Find


That's my husband. He's not actually digging for books; he's an avid rockhound and I couldn't resist including his picture in my new now-and-then meme, Tiny Treasures.

I have always loved best the books nobody else knows about; I've never been one for bestsellers. So I decided to create this meme.

Once-in-a-while, I plan to feature a book that is (1) little-known or was-once-known-but-has-been-forgotten, and (2) fabulous. I'll use this format:

Tiny Treasure
Publication Date
A Tiny Review
Why You Must Try to Dig It Up
Best Digging Spots

I bet you know some tiny treasures, too. It would be lovely if you'd like to share them along with me.

I plan to post my first Tiny Treasure soon. Hope to see you there!

  3. This will be fun! I do read bestsellers, but I've always done much of my reading based on what I stumble across at the library, so some of my favorites are pretty obscure. Looking forward to seeing what you highlight!

  4. I'm in. I will participate in your TINY Treasures meme. Now I have to put my thinking cap on as to such treasures.

    Have a good week.

  6. What a great idea! Sometimes being a best-seller is actually a negative indicator for me.

  7. That's a neat idea - we sometimes forget the lost treasures!

  10. What a brilliant idea! I recently watched a video on YouTube by Jen Campbell about little-known books and ended up picking one of them up in Waterstones the next day. I'll let you know if it qualifies for your Tiny Treasures label!

  11. I love this. It reminds me of the Small Gems book box we used to send around. :-)
