Old Books

"It is a good rule after reading a new book,
never to allow yourself another new one
till you have read an old one in between."
~C.S. Lewis

Achoo! Discarding books is always an adventure with the years of dust and allergens, but it is fun to imagine the hands that have touched these books.

Some books were checked out when I was in elementary school.  Some were here when Steve was in high school.

Also, the library worker who used the small ID stamp really, really liked to stamp. I picture her having fun stamping lots of places in each book and I think she probably would have loved letterboxing!

Copyright 1953, dapper looking authors, VHS tapes, and other books are being withdrawn from the ERHS collection.

Now I'm going to find some Benedryl!  Achoo! Sniff, sniff!
