Summer reading

Once upon a time, many years ago, I was a student.  As a student, our English teacher  thought when school dismissed for summer, that reading would be a good idea.  To some students she would assign books, others were left up to chose on their own.
That set in motion a life time habit of loving to read especially in the summer.
Summer reading means finding a shady spot and losing yourself for hours in the pages of times gone by.  

I happen to love OLD BOOKS, the older the 
 better. I was thrilled to find this book tucked away with some of our families old treasures.

 An inscription on the inside makes it a bit of a mystery.  Were these family friends? Were they family members?   I know my father was born in Chadron, Nebraska.  The date the book was gifted May 26th 1896.

Look at that price.  I am also looking at the beautiful hand writing.

 The pages are now yellowed and crisp and must be handled with great care.  Oh, How I love reading the pages, as they share so much history.


More about the author
Her home. I am just fascinated by this woman and feel so lucky to have one of her books.  I might need to collect more.
