in praise of vintage books

I finished this book on the way back from Montreal. It was the first time I’d ever read it (I know, I know). It was found in a laundromat by a family friend and given to my mother. Look at the gorgeous cover! Old book design is unmatched, in my opinion.

Old books are great, especially when they’ve been used by a student in a mixture of relevant class notes and future invention ideas.

I almost didn’t want to give this back to my mother when I returned from Montreal!

    I read To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time only a couple of years ago. Amazing book, isn’t it?

      Very amazing! It made me wonder, for a few days, what the point of me being a writer even was! ;)
