I came across several books that I liked for their size, age, color, and, of course, interesting content! I enjoy a good book, but these were going to be used mainly for decorative purposes, and they were 50% off!
I was struck when I opened a couple of them by the sentimental writing in the covers. How sweet!
And, the age of some of these books. 1934!
I'm not sure I could just leave a book, or anything else for that matter, that had a direct note written to me in it....even if it just says "to" and "from". I would probably have to cover the note somehow. I have a hard time taking my kids old sports uniforms to the Goodwill because our last name is usually on it.
I feel kind of lucky to have these books. The original recipient must have meant a lot to the "giver" of the books for them to have taken the time to address a note.
Hope your week is off to a good start!
