Another rescue! It‘s a little rough but still beautiful. A 1914 1st edition. I‘m never sure how anyone can consign unique older books to the rubbish pile.

Bklover Can‘t you just picture someone reading this a hundred years ago!? Love it! 1mo
wanderinglynn What a great find! 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl Exactly @Bklover .. if only books could tell us their own personal stories. 1mo

Went to an open day at the local archives today. Such beautiful lettering in this record from the 1600s. (Now for a cup of tea before I start my reading for the day).

After going to countless garage sales this weekend, you would think I would have added a few #novels to my #TBR pile. Unfortunately, the #book selections I stumbled upon were not of interest, for the most part. I did find these cool #oldbooks though. The frog book was 25 cents and the dog book was free!

I picked up this little guy at an Antique Mall with my Grandma. It‘s an annotated guide to shorthand and it‘s just wonderful 🥰.

Good morning, Dragonlings! 🤗
•• Have you ever ventured into old yet not classical literature? It‘s a fun place.
I‘d recommend The Lamplighters collection. 👌🏻

28 out of 38 of my Modern Library Editions with dust jackets. All that will fit on this credenza. I have 27 without dust jackets also. 🥰 #collectible #oldbooks #modernlibrary #blumenthal

Lcsmcat Have you read Winesburg Ohio yet? My interest is piqued after having read Prairie Fires, which mentions it multiple times. 11mo
jillrhudy @lcmscat no but of all people who should, I am at the top of the list! Maybe I will read it this week. 11mo

Aimeesue “Credenza” is such a fun word to say. “Go put that on the credenza.” “Yes, your keys are on the credenza, I believe.” I may get one just so I can say it all the time. 11mo

So it was Belgrade Book Fair a few days ago and I bought these old beauties by Agatha Christie.

I usually buy old/vintage books on book fairs since bookshops have sales on new editions after the fair (or even during the fair). And these editions are becoming hard to find (I fell in love with them when I was a kid and read my first Agatha Christie book)
