Used Book Store Find

I love this old copy of Jack and Jill by Louisa May Alcott! I think it a very charming edition. I love the sweet illustrations and the colors on the cover. I'm always excited to find L.M. Alcott books in good condition. Especially Little Women. I have a small collection of them right now and I would love to find more in the future. That's usually the first book I look for in used book shops.

So, now I just need to read it!

Baedeker's Great Britain

I just wanted to share with you, what I think is one of the coolest books ever. :)
I found it burried in the Goodwill bookshelves for a mere $4.00 one day.
It's dated 1910 and as these amazing pull out maps...

Don't you agree, it's one of the coolest books ever? It looks like it's seen a good bit of the world. It's like finding an old friend. :) I hope to take it to England with me next trip and see if anything's changed.
