The AAUW has its annual Book Fair.
It is massive.
Over 100,000 books this year and around 1000 people wandering the aisles Friday morning.
Here are a few of my choices.
Small Mary Baker Eddy Bibles.
The Japanese - books of haiku.
The Germans - texts, novels, translation dictionaries.
The French - texts, children's books, and translation dictionaries.
I love the Mother Goose!
An animal encyclopedia and a compilation of music - including replicas of the original sheet music.
I am attracted to tiny books - subject, cover, size - all appeal to me.
I only found one old atlas.
The Home Furniture Builder is chocked full of line drawings of tools and furniture.
And Heloise's Hints - a favorite newspaper column when I was growing up.
I found stacks of decorating books.
All in good or great shape.
A bag of old reading and English textbooks will be added to my huge collection.
The Book One is a must keep.
If I Were Going (Alice and Jerry) reader will stay until I discover if I have this one already.
I spied this tiny red book and for some reason (tiredness from browsing three hours through miles of books maybe!) it amused me.
20,000 Words - a title short and to the point.
Used in shorthand classes.
And when I peeked inside, I saw -
Divided neatly into syllables with the accented syllables denoted.
It took four trips to buy all I wanted.
(Noticed I did not say "needed".)
All proceeds go to college scholarships for women attending universities across the country.
I am proud to be the 1971 Scholarship winner for the Aiken AAUW.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual Magnolia Ridge Antiques and Art Gathering!
