I love old books..... I have 4 REALLY old books.... One is called vacation days, That's me all over Mable (about 90 years.... GREAT condition..... I've had that since I was 13, was my great great gmas. Also a Currier and Ives colelection book, and this one. I love old books..... And for me, they are more than just "books"...... I don't put them on display.... I put them on my shelf and read them like the rest. The Vacation Days isn't in the greatest condition, so I don't have that one *out* but I do read it.
I'm currently working on some newspapers from the 30's and later earlier, more or less.
