Why I like old-fashioned paper books

Posted June 14, 2014

I like turning the pages, flipping back and forth between chapters, being able to read in all situations; not having to carry a smart phone or an Ipad, worrying about keeping the batteries up. Just a simple, plain old book; writing in the margins....

Bonny Brae Books

Collections, in addition to Theology, are Biography and Autobiography, Fiction, Crafts, Ethics, English history and literature, Historical Novels, Mysteries, Music and Art, Psychology, American history and literature, plus many books about WWII, Japanese literature, culture and history. My Music items are LP s, on Japanese vinyl, all in Fine condition and ranging from Avant garde to Punk rock, from Duane Allman to Arbeit Macht Frei.

I love books, I like to read them, collect them, organize them, repair them, and now, at age 80, I've started selling them, the entire library. My husband was a Baptist minister and missionary for 60 years so many books are theological in nature; however, we both majored in Science so our inventory is quite varied. We lived in Japan for 22 years and have a great interest in Japan, its culture and history.Many of my books were published before the age of ISBN's and some are rare and collectible; many are first editions. I try to write clearly about the condition of the books, since many are quite old.

Great reference book for writerss.

Packing adequate. Shipment to UK took 5 weeks instead of the (fairly long) 4 weeks estimated - Considering the standard air mail rate paid, I would have thought a much better delivery time would have been achieved. ..I would buy from them again.

Response from Alibris customer service

The seller shipped this order on time. It was shipped from the seller to our freight forwarder, and then shipped on to the customer. The seller is not at fault for the delay.

Wow this album was graded perfectly by the Bonny Brae Books, it's flawless and like new and sounds wonderful (I've listened to it many times now). And they got it to me fast too. I'm super pleased and looking through their Alibris store now for more!
