“I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them.” – Emma Thompson
Books have been part of my life since I was a little girl. I truly love books and seem to have formed a fondness for vintage books of late, especially from the early 1900s (the Edwardian Period). The covers were a beautiful work of art and the stories rich with love, betrayal and humor.
One author I really enjoy is Myrtle Reed, author of Lavender and Old Lace. I have been collecting her books over the last few months and so very happy to find ones with such lovely covers!
I am slowly running out of room but my husband is encouraging me to keep collecting, even if they have to be boxed up. Some day we hope to have a larger home that we can have one room turned into a library. I’ve always wanted a home library and can’t wait to have that dream come true.
