we love thru books and songs

I saw a copy
of Catch 22 in a thrift store.
I picked it up to see
if anyone wrote a story in it.

fifty years before i was born...

…a husband gave a wife a book of poems.

I love when books have inscriptions, it leaves a tangible piece of someone’s life with the book (even 3/4 of a century after), adds a piece to a story. 88 more words

For the Love of Used Books

My sentiments exactly regarding old books. I recently went to the annual Founders Book Fair here in Nelson, a weeklong booklover’s must-do. Several hours perusing thousands of used books in a chilly barn (I was prepared this year – layers, fingerless gloves, no purse, just a pocketful of cash and a reusable bag – and a partner to carry said bag when it got too heavy) ranging in price from 50 cents to three dollars netted me another 40+ books to add to my collections for $43. 376 more words
