Volumes

A gift from my dear sister. She knows how much I love books of any kind, but especially old ones.

Don't judge a book by its cover? That's a tough admonition to follow in this case.

I'm slightly partial to this author.

And do you remember this scene from our beloved Anne of Green Gables?

Oh! You are so fortunate to have both of those books, but of course I covet the one with the poetry.

Are they First Editions?

Hi Michele,
I too love books but like I am partial to old books and I am always looking for them. You were truly blessed to have these two given to you . Anne of Green Gables is a favorite of mine.
Thank you for sharing, and thank you for stopping by and visiting me and for leaving such a sweet comment.
Praying your Sunday is restful and peaceful.
