My new book

Posted by Jeanne

Okay, so I'm weak willed. I'll admit it.

I know I do not need a fourth copy of Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare. I know.

But tell me honestly - would you have been able to walk past this gilt edged beauty if you were the one to spy it in a second-hand bookstore near where you live? Well? Would you?

It's in perfect condition. The binding is tight, there is almost no foxing, and it has beautiful illustrations. In colour. Swoonly swoon. I mean to say.

What do you think I am?

I've just discovered that there's a companion volume of Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. I'm sure I need that too. Quite sure.

Unless any of you can convince me that I really don't need a ninth edition of that book.

Good luck with that.

I couldn't have left it either.

Definitely swoon worthy. You would have been crazy to pass that up!

Oh my! I would've jumped on that too! I am green with envy right now. What a score!

Bonnie said...

Yes, you do need another Lamb copy because of the beauty. That is what I have said through the years but always end up with another one!

Sarah said...

Very beautiful...what a blessing!

No way could I have resisted that book. What a lucky find. I have a battered old version of Lambs'. It's well loved, but I could love a beautiful version just as easily! :)

I would have most certainly snatched that book up in a minute. How lovely!

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
