  7. I could spend hours looking at old books. Come to think of it, I could spend hours looking through any books!

  8. Old books can be favorites...I have two old books that were published in 1921, and were gifted to my mother by her favorite aunt. I did some repairs on them when I worked in a library. They have pride of place on my Baker's Rack.

    Thanks for sharing.
