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! 3mo
wanderinglynn What a great find! 3mo
CoverToCoverGirl Exactly @Bklover .. if only books could tell us their own personal stories. 3mo

Talk about VINTAGE! At the request of Leah, here‘s an EIGHTY year old library bound copy of Tryst. It‘s filthy, spotty, torn, and has a Dole Banana sticker on p. 53. Out of print for eons. Stamps in the back go back to 1972.

'Old books exert a strange fascination for me -- their smell, their feel, their history; wondering who might have owned them, how they lived, what they felt.' - Lauren Willig

I‘m starting to run out of room of places to keep my books in my small apartment so there are piles on windowsills and floors lol.

I got these at the Friends of the library sale last weekend. They had a whole table full of vintage books and I grabbed these ones. I wanted so much more but had to resist.

A few years ago, I bought a set of totally awesome vintage OZ books, but aside from the ones I read in childhood, I am yet to read them! I‘m challenging myself to it in 2019 - and I‘m coloring in the 💛yellow💛 brick road as I go! 😆 #itsthelittlethingsyall #bujo2019 #bujolife #bookbujo #librarianlife #wizardofoz #oz #vintagebooks #bookbujo #bulletjournal #bujo #readingchallenge #bookchallenge

The #Russia prompt from #augustisatrip made me immediately think of this book, which I‘ve had since I was a kid. I took the pic on my fur coat, which is all Mrs. Harris wanted from Moscow!! #mrsharris #vintagebooks @vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

This was such a fun book! I bought it at a library sale because it's illustrated by Erik Blegvad and I collect his books. Just a great story about a brother and sister on an adventure! #vintagebooks #erikblegvad

#riotgrams day 11, #nakedhardcovers.
I didn‘t undress anything for this one, just chose the books I have that are already naked! And they happen to be some of my favorites! The copy of “Rebecca” is a first edition 😊 #oldbooks #janeeyre #firstedition #vintagebooks @bookriot

Slajaunie Love Rebecca! You have another of my favorites as well, Mary, Queen of Scots. 2y
RadicalReader @WhiskeyMistress looking forward to reading Rebecca for myself heard awesome reviews for it and love me some scary novels 2y
WhiskeyMistress @RadicalReader it is a singular delight, marketed as a romance but a true thriller that deserves every bit of praise it gets. Hasn‘t been out of print since 1938. 2y
WhiskeyMistress @Slajaunie I LOVE “Mary, Queen of Scots”, as well as Antonia Fraser‘s “Marie Antoinette”, although I don‘t own a copy of that one! 2y
Slajaunie @WhiskeyMistress I will have to add that one to my tbr list. 2y

@ErinSueG demanded I read #wutheringheights along with her, but I couldn‘t find my copy. Went to the #thriftstore to source one, and found... this instead 💁 #score #vintagebooks #sopretty #shopaholic #oldbooks #smellsogood

TheEldritchProfessor Score!!! That‘s amazing. I generally hate romances, but I do love Victorian gothic — ghosts and windswept moors and the like. So I enjoyed WH pretty well, despite the fact that it‘s the most toxic romance imaginable. 2y
