During our move I discovered a box of old books that I inherited from my beloved grandmother. I still can't believe that I forgot about them and that they had to stay in a grubby old box for so long. They are such pretty books with with beautiful illustrations...there's some Dostojewskij, some Fallada, Daphne Du Maurier, and alot of Jane Austen, all in different languages, some French some German and so on (my grandmother didn't speak English)...can't stop reading!

  4. Just stumbled upon your blog and I love the hazy, dreamy feel of it! I love discovering old books - its like flicking through an old photo album full of old friends and half forgotten memories! I can't imagine getting quite so nostalgic about ever discovering a folder full of old ebooks on my laptop though!!
