Why I like old-fashioned paper books

Posted June 14, 2014

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.

Merry Christmas!

Posted by Bonny Brae Books on December 13, 2013

It has a nice ring to it; but, what makes it Merry? The warmth of the family, coming home and seeing the delight on the faces of parents, grandparents and old friends. Giving gifts; it's an old cliche, but the giving is as much or more fun than the receiving. Enjoy your faith, in family, in friends, in yourself and in your religion. It is a time of true rejoicing. But, in our festivities, let's not forget the poor, the homeless, the lonely aged. Give to the local charity that provides food, clothing, housing and warmth to those in need. And, through the Season, refresh your spirit; we all need some happiness.
