Site is currently under construction! Join me as I continue to update...daily!
I have been wanting to start this blog for ages! Finally the time seems right. I have quit a part time job that I had, and now I may turn my attentions to other endeavors.
Let me tell you my vision for this blog. First, and I am afraid , selfishly...I need to start the sad process of dispersing my own personal library that I have been building for 29 years! I can still remember pushing my little baby girl (6 months old!) around in her stroller at a used book vendor at a local fair. I stumbled upon a box of old children's books, lavishly illustrated...they just called my name. And they have been calling my name ever since. I have laughed (and others with me) that I have been on a mission to "save each and every living book printed before the year 1960"... and I think I have done a pretty good job of it. But, it is time to downsize my 20 + ceiling-to- floor bookcases that have books double and triple parked.
As time allows, I would like to highlight certain books and series. Also, I want to price my books so that they can be affordable to anyone. My purpose is not to make a fortune, but just to basically get back what I put into them.
You will notice that many of my books are library discards. I will write a more detailed description, if I find the book to have above average use or wear. I am also planning to have special sales, and promos something along this line: (Buy 3 books, get 1 free!). Oh, and incidentally, we are a smoke free home.
I have literally thousands of books and it will take me some time to get them all posted and cataloged. Of course, I don't plan to post thousands of books, but will be posting books by the banker box full , hopefully each week. So, be sure to keep checking back.
I am excited to share my treasures with you and hope they will bless you as much as they have blessed my family.
Please feel free to leave me any comments and I look forward to hearing back from you.
Books should be posting by this weekend,
