Book Lovers Anonymous

I think I've mentioned before, my husband is a book lover. I don't know how many collections he's had over the years, but a LOT! He recently decided to thin out some of his collection. I wonder why I bug him so much about BUYING and COLLECTING the books, but when he decides to part with some, it's harder for ME to let them go?  Maybe because with some of them, I get attached, and they're like family, and... Well, anyway, take a look at some of these adorable little books that will be leaving home soon.... These are a sweet little collection, he read a lot of them to our now-almost-grown-daughter.



 I think the inscriptions are some of the best parts!







Most of the children's books he has seem to have been gifts from either Christmas, Birthdays, or Sunday School. And probably much more treasured than today's average kid would appreciate. Kind of a sad thought.
Jeepers, he caught me taking photos and just like any book addict, he reminds me, "Karen, be really careful when you open them, the spines are delicate, and they can crack if they're not handled carefully..."  Yes, Sweetheart, I know you love your books.

Hi Annete! I forgot to say I hadn't dented the box of this collection lol. He has a potential buyer right now, but if that doesn't work, I may list them on Etsy. Problem is, that's a TON of work, I think there are 150 of these! Thanks for visiting! ~Karen
