Welcome to Prospero's Blog! My wife Mollie and I work together in our Rough Magic studio on the coast of Maine. I've always loved old books, memorabilia, curiosities and Americana (especially 19th century dramatic literature) and am happy to share my discoveries in my Etsy Shops. Please come by and browse ~ there's just no telling what you'll find!

Goodbye to Google Reader. What now?

A big change is coming to Blogger! Good or Bad? It's up to you.

The bad news: As of July 1, the Google Reader will be a thing of the past, which means you won't be able to use it to follow new blogs or see posts by your favorite bloggers.

The good news: All is not lost. There's another Reader on the scene -! After an easy sign up, with Facebook or by email, a simple click of a button will automatically import all the blogs you already follow to the bloglovin' reader.

But make it snappy! July 1 is just around the corner, and you don't want to miss even one new blog post!

To continue following my blog, look to the right side bar -------------->>>

Click the white "Follow this blog with bloglovin'" button, and we're all set!

More good news! It's easy to add the button to your own blog:

Although a relatively inactive blogger in recent weeks, I've got big plans for the future of Prospero's Bookshelf, so please click that white button to continue (or start) following me - with the fabulous new Reader at!

Meanwhile, many thanks to you, my loyal, intrepid followers.

See you soon - on bloglovin'.

And that's Very Good News indeed!
