Green books for a lucky St. Patrick's Day

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we looked around the office for any green books on our shelves. And it turns out we have quite a few! So we've decided to share some of our greenest books with you, hoping they'll bring you lots of luck as we head into spring.

1) First up is one of our favorites, and a weekly feature on the blog, The Superior Person's Third Book of Well-Bred Words by Peter Bowler:

2) Next we have a book that should give us double points because it's about gardens, and there's nothing greener than a garden! It's On the Making of Gardens by Sir George Sitwell:
3) Third we have a beautiful book of poems by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (whose birthday was back in February!), illustrated by Frederic Remington, The Song of Hiawatha:
4) And last but not least, we have a literary classic, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett:

So there you have a few very green books from around the Godine office. Whether you're Irish or not, we hope the luck of St. Patrick is on your side!
