I see the Blue Book!! I love books too, and we own many both new and old.I played along for the first time this week too.
It's sad when really old books get thrown out to Op Shops and the like. Lucky there are a few of us collecting them. A lovely collection.
Vintage books are a wonderful thing to collect and preserve for the future. Gotta say I had a laugh at your About Me ....knitting is not for grannies !!! But i get that from my hubby if he catches me crocheting....comes in with a comment like "when did you turn 90?"
Oh I love old books - love how they smell!
