Things I've found in Books
Do you know how much I love books?
New books are so enticing--the smell of ink, the texture of the cover, the stiffness of the spine, the fresh, uncreased pages filled with the story's promise.
Old books with the occasional bent pages, the fun art that can be found on the end papers, the classic looking covers with gold on the embossed letters, bring a mysterious history--where has it been? Did the owner enjoy the story?
One of my favorite things about old books is not actually the book itself, but the surprises you might find inside!
Secret codes, Pressure point charts, intricately cut invitations, newspaper articles with vintage ads on the back.
You think I can find one of those sewing machines for 49.95 somewhere?
