Show and Tell Friday





My Pastor and his wife were given these books and since they have no kids of their own they passed them on to my oldest daughter to loves to read. They are beautiful, old books; published in 1918. What a great addition to the book shelf. We are missing one of the set because it was damaged, but the rest are in good condition.

Now I know where all the good
books are, at your house!
I always liked books that group
stories and subject matter together. I am not much of a
novel reader.
