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.

Why I like old-fashioned paper books

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, underlining if I want and it's My book, not the library's. I am too old to handle the glare of the monitors, for instance. I realize that the future is with the new technology and I'm becoming more adept in using it every day, but, I'll always have my hard copies in hand and heart.
