Aah… the smell of an old library! Even better than a great cup of coffee, or the bouquet of fine old wine.
Can you imagine a huge library of great books, but not enough time to read them! Can you imagine being in a library of books… good, old musty books, a smell that I love. Can you imagine having your own library of old and rare books?
Do you enjoy reading a good book? Are there books that you love to read but can’t find them anymore? Are you interested in novels, written by great authors of the past, but just can’t find them?
Sure, you can buy books nearly anywhere, but can you find the books that you want just any place? Unique books, old books, new books, rare books, books you can hardly find?
Yes, I love books and have written and published 27.
Love to read books… new books, novels, biography, history… you name it, I love to read. There are books that have gone out of publication that I have not gained, but I have found a place where I can get them and I want to share that information with you.
So, I read books as a child and a teenager, that I would love to get my hands on again.
Still, I remember great books like Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Rider’s of the purple sage, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and other great books. How I would love to get my hands on some of those great books. Many of them are out of print and only available in specialty bookstores.
It’s true, I once had a library of over 500 books, but I gave them away to a school.
Not sorry I did that, but would I love to have them again! Well, I am rebuilding my library in my old age and plan to leave it to my grandchildren.
Where do I find some of these old books? Stay with me for a little more and I will share with you some fascinating places where you can find them. As a young man, I used to ride the bus every day from my home in Louisville to the downtown library to sit for hours and read. It was nothing for me to go through a book a day… did I mention that I loved to read?
To have that opportunity again would bring back those old memories and would bring such enjoyment of reading some of those old classics again. Oh, how I loved Mark Twain. Do you recall reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Innocents Abroad, The Prince and the Pauper?
Never forgotten classics.
Sure you can find reprints and modern copies of them but I want the original ones… the musty smelling ones!
How would you like to get your hands on a Charles Dickens book published in the 1800s?
You can. Think about the book Sketches, signed by Mark Twain and published in 1880… Yes, you can!
Wait, I’m not interested in rare books. I would just like to find a place where I can get great books at a reasonable price… can I? The answer… yes! I love a great mystery by Agatha Christie… got you covered.
Want something unique… how about a hard-backed book, Why England Slept, signed by John F. Kennedy? Yep… got it.
