There are at least five posts on some of the books bought lately.
I love the look of books, the smell of books - everything about books.
When Tania of Little Vintage Cottage
(HERE) offered to trade books for beads, of course I said YES!
She sent not one, but two old primers.
These are definite keepers.
The rest of the books are from my visit to Hayesville, North Carolina. (Read about the trip here!)
All of these were bought at the library store.
Teacher's editions are harder to find because there were fewer printed.
If I Were Going is a preview of a primer used for teachers to read and decide how to vote on new books.
We Work And Play is an early Dick and Jane reader.
The younger sister is not called "Sally", but called "Baby".
It does have Puff, Spot and Tim.
Who remembers Tim?
Rhyming Dictionaries are favorites in the booth.
The two small books are interesting - The Prince of Peace and Fellowship (a Masonic book of religious poems).
Olivia found this tiny Green Book Of Birds Of America.
Each page has a print of a bird and its description.
It has been well-loved over the decades.
The book is the same size as the checkout card.
Another small book - American Frugal Housewife.
A reprint of an 1800's book.
More primary textbooks.
Rides and Slides is an Alice and Jerry reader.
Bought for the color and the subject - one on the Suwanee and the other The Snow Geese.
I love to find books with a Christmas inscription.
On the inside of The Snow Geese an inscription from 1944.
In Story Land is copyrighted in the 1920's, but in great shape.
On the sale rack of the library store were stacks of gardening books.
Some still with the covers.
Found a whole stack of Frank Slaughter books.
I've read every one.
Finally, Laura Ashley.
I never leave behind Laura!
I hope you love books and love seeing books and love buying books because I will continue to post about books.
Some will be going to the booth.
Some are already there.
Some have sold.
If you see one you would like to buy, send me an email and I will reserve a listing on Etsy for you.
