Novel Destinations

William Sydney Porter was accused of embezzling money from an Austin bank where he worked as a teller, went on the lam to Honduras, and returned to face charges after receiving the news that his young wife was dying. Convicted of the crime, Porter spent three years in an Ohio prison, where he occupied his time writing and adopted the pseudonym O. Henry.

This week’s question is: When you feature a book in your posts, do you include a book cover? Yes, I always include a book cover for every book I post about, and I add a link to the book, usually GoodReads.

  1. Wow, I love this back story on O. Henry! Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “THE WIDOWER’S WIFE”

  2. I also link to the Goodreads page, usually within the text the cover image as well. I’m a visual person, so I never spend much time on posts that don’t have a cover image.

  3. I need this book! I had no idea about the back story on O. Henry and I really want to find out more little secrets! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds like a book that would be filled with interesting information. This week I am featuring One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews. Happy reading!

  5. I’ve read and loved a lot of O. Henry’s short stories. He was such a master at it. I had no idea this was part of his background. Now I’m going to have to think about his stories in a different way.
