I did the dangerous thing and went to a book store while on vacation. I haven't decided whether I came out the better or worse for it. I came back with less money, but more books, and now have the extremely challenging situation of trying to figure out how to fit them on my book case.
I have been wanting to get the whole Little House series in vintage hardcover, so I couldn't pass this one up. I have a copy of By the Shore of Silver Lake so I am a quarter of the way through. :) They won't be matching, but I think that will actually make it fun.
I have no idea if this book is any good, but I was interested with it from the fact of being written during WWII, published in 1942, and my guess somewhat of a propaganda work.
Another one I have no idea about, but for a dollar I figured it was worth the try. It might also give my voracious younger sister something to read.
I have never read Eight Cousins, but being by Louisa May Alcott, I felt pretty sure of it being a safe bet, and worth being on my book shelf.
Now I have never read any Zane Grey, but I went 50/50 on this with my dad to try him out. (If any one is at all familiar with his works, I would love to hear more.)
I have never actually read Pollyanna. (Gasps of horror, I am sure.) To some people, even worse of a crime, I have watched an older movie production of it.
I have never heard of this book before or of its author, but figured it was worth a try. (See how my shopping went? Let's just try it!)
But with an original copyright date of 1909, and this inscription in the front, which looks written with an old fountain pen, I couldn't resist.
Not to mention that the only books that I spent more than a dollar on were the Little House book and the Zane Grey. Can't resist those good prices!
