I love the sweetness of old book covers, the charm of their stories. How one can learn about history alongside of a story just by the language and descriptions.
We have been lucky at the auction lately, no one wants books. We buy tables full for just a few dollars.
We keep what we want and sell the rest. These are Landmark books, some are worth more than others. I am waiting for that big score when I get one of the rare ones.
What about bird books? Can anyone pass up a nicely illustrated bird book? I think that would be most difficult. This book sits on my desk, mostly because that is where I set it down one day…now it is a permanent part of the décor. Sometimes Sawyer looks at it and yells “EAGLE, OWL” or my favorite “BWUE BUHD”.
So yeah, I own a lot of books…but they kind of own me, too.
