I love buying books, because I love to read. But I especially love to buy and read old books.......
Apparently, this little fairy does, too:
These are definitely not collector's editions! They are so old and tattered, and sadly, some of them are starting to fall apart at their spines.
But, I love them just the same, and each has it's own charm: real leather binding, beautiful color plates,
and exquisite and detailed illustrations.
To me, books are my friends. Having them around brings me such pleasure. I get a thrill when I find a nice, new-to-me, time-worn book for my collection. And, like my friends, I love acquiring new ones, yet nothing can replace my old ones. I treasure each one.
