yummy old books

moving in a couple of weeks
most books already in boxes
yet managed to pick more up.
what can i say?

treasures found recently:
old, musty books
oh so yummy.
just glad we could rescue them
for our next generation of readers.

i love aged children’s books
printed before our time,
or our parents’ time.
with inscriptions like

to jeff and jon,
love grandma and grandpa.

oh the history!
they are treasures irreplaceable
we can make room for
anytime.

“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” ~C.S. Lewis
