September 1: Edgar Rice Burroughs’ The Return of Tarzan | Daily Literary Quotes @ Literary Cobblestones

Hello Cobblers!

We’ve officially made it through our first month! I’m happy to say there was little-to-no loss of blood, tears or ambition.

Today we don’t only celebrate a milestone for Literary Cobblestones, we also celebrate the birth of author Edgar Rice Burroughs, the man who brought us the created of Tarzan.

I reluctantly admit that I have never read Burroughs, which is why one of today’s links is the collection of his works on Project Gutenberg: “Books by Burroughs, Edgar Rice.”

And here is chapter one of a biography on Burroughs, written by John Taliaferro: “Tarzan Forever: The Life of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Creator of Tarzan.”

Friday will come faster if you read, read, read.
