Books have always been hard for me to part ways with, but not anymore! I sent just about everything to Goodwill. I kept just a few of my most sentimental ones, and they are now stored in the house, in my bookcase in the living room (which I also cleared out; I figured if I was bringing some in, then others had to go). The book boxes were the most fun to go through and take one last look at - here's some of my favorite finds:
I didn't save this book, but I had to take a picture before it went bye bye:
Sure, you knew The Partridge Family was a TV show, but did you know they also were immortalized in books? See ya, Keith Partridge!
Finally found my original Nurse Nancy book! I loved this one when I was a child; saved it.
I always thought I looked like the girl on this book - as you can see, in case anyone questioned me, I wrote my name by her face just so they'd KNOW it was me.
The book that made me laugh was My Book About Me:
It was a book that you filled in; I was eight-years-old when I got it.
As you can see, I never liked math...this holds true even today.
Again, a still-to-this-day truism. But wait - let's take a closer look...
"I haved one. Now I wish I did."
Have you ever seen anything sadder??? This was after our dog Fluffy went to live on "a farm" because she was chewing up the fence.
Yeah, I was pretty fixated on getting a puppy. Did that happen? Nope. We didn't get another dog until I was in Junior High, I think. I had the worst childhood EVER!!! ;)
Apparently tuna was not fish when I was eight. Also, spelling wasn't my strong suit back then.
So later on, my favorite uncle happened to read the book - and I discovered that he made some additions:
Seeing my uncle's additions made me laugh all over again - he was so quick with the humor.
LOL - it's funny because it's true...
Look - I even got his autograph! He's famous, dontcha know?!
Have a great Monday!
