I. Love. Books! I always have.
I have been collecting books since I was 11, when I received my first book, an abridged copy of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott; which I read repeatedly until it sadly fell apart at the seams.
I hope you enjoy the book haul!
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis complete collection.
My (amazing, sweet) Mother has always bought us one book every time we go to a thriftstore for as long as I can remember. So I may have taken advantage of that by often looking for books more than other items of need or want. I found this collection of The Chronicles of Narnia the last time we went to Goodwill, and, let me tell you.. I was very excited when I did! My older sister had a copy of this, but took it with her when she got hitched, and I've been on the lookout ever since.
1984 by George Orwell
I have read Orwell's other works, and was excited to find this at a book sale because I've been wanting to read it. Now, if I don't like it, I can just re-gift it ~smile~
I bought it at a book sale for 50 cents.
And I found these beauties at a church book sale. I love Dear America and My America Diaries, and I've been collecting them for as long as I can remember.
I'm not sure who the authors are, but the books are
My Face to the Wind
Land of the Buffalo Bones
Lady of Ch'iao Kuo
They were $2.00 each, a good deal if I do say so myself!
As you can see, I have a growing stash of these books. About half of them were my older sister's, until she
relinquished her claim got married and gave them to me. I love the stories they tell, and how they each transport me to a different time in history.
What books are you collecting? Do you have a favorite series?
