A few weekends ago I took Jack to a bookfair. He sat perfectly enthralled in his book picks while I browsed…he makes me so proud: a little reader! Since it was almost closing time, I got all of my books for $0.10 each! 15 books for $1.50. That little victory made me all giddy inside for a good 3 days! I get a cheap thrill!
My most rEcent purchase was a small lot of vintage Readers Digest Condensed books from etsy…they are adorable. I’m especially excited about the 1961 version which includes To Kill a Mockingbird!!! I’ve never read the “condensed versions” so I hope they're not too condensed!
Speaking of books, someday, I hope to have a pretty bookshelf with color coordinated books, like these:
*Truth be told, I have a "thing" for all books: vintage...children's...whatever! Jack's room is slowly becoming a library (a big toybox full, a bookshelf full, and three storage baskets full...and I've already moved the "baby" books that Jack has outgrown to Lila's room). I just cannot help myself when it comes to books...it's my thing.
