Some little old books

I’m a massive book fan. I could never trade in my shelves of stories for a ebook reader (or something similar). Theres something about the smell of a new book too, you dont get that from a Kindle! Im also looking forward to passing on my collection of books to any future kiddos I might have.

Not all of the books in my bookcase are new. On my various trips to carboot sales and junk shops, I love to find little old books! I think theres something about it surviving for so long and not being thrown away that makes me want to buy them and treasure them!

Its also exciting when you come across a classic like Winnie the Pooh or even The Wind In The Willows, stories that I loved growing up.

So I thought what better thing to do than share them here! Most of these books didn’t cost more than £1.00! I think the large nature book was £2.00 but its still a steal!

Alice, Willows, Tales oh my!

      Thanks for your comment! I love old books, theres just something about them having survived for so long – especially in a world where we can buy them so easily on a kindle or an iPad!
