I hit another used book sale a couple of weeks ago and just got around to shooting some of my favorites. And because I am so book obsessed, I am sharing them with you. Even though, most of them probably hold no particular interest to anyone but me.
Unless you have great taste.
I spotted this book about a little astronaut and knew it was perfect for James' 6th birthday.
He wants a space party.
These illustrations will be perfect for the invitations. Because, even though I am married to an artist, I am in no way guaranteed art. You know, like the cobbler's children have no shoes?
This book, Look Out For Pirates, is a favorite from Nana and Papa's house. The boys were so, so excited to have their own copy.
I am so, so excited by that cover. Isn't it great?
Let me just tell you that Aaron and I are working on some art for the big. empty wall over our couch and this map will be prominently featured.
The graphics, the colors, the simplicity, the randomness of many of them. The tremendous difference between them and present day text books. (which I think, not surprisingly, stink in comparison)
Who carried this with them on bird watching hikes?
The Warblers. I love that already.
Myrtle Warbler. A little old lady bird.
Tennessee Warbler. We know where they're from.
Pileolated Warbler. From the Latin pileus. Look it up.
Books give me great joy. Thank you for indulging me.
I'll be back tomorrow with list # 2. Are you working on yours yet?????
