Shabby Sunday Meme
I have a lot of old vintage books and one of my plans when I first started blogging was to do a post every week or so that shared one of my cherished vintage books. Then, I thought that maybe there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share. I decided to start a weekly meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some vintage books you’d like to share? Please feel free to participate. Feel free to use the picture I’ve provided if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me so that I can see the book you’re sharing.
Today’s shabby share is:
The Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain
Growing up in my grandparents home, we had books from wall to wall. My grandfather was a teacher and loved the written word. We had plenty of books to keep us busy. One of the only books that I have left in my collection that belonged to my grandfather is The Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain. I can still remember him reading it when I was just a young child. Something I love about Mark Twain’s writing are the memorable characters.
To me, this is a must-have for any Mark Twain fan. Mine is the 1957 edition hardcover. A few of my favorites are:
- A Dying Man’s Confession
- A Day at Niagara
- A Ghost Story
- A Dog’s Tale
I love that I can now share this with my kids as well. It’s definitely a keeper! My rating for this one is 5*****
- Hardcover: 676 pages
- Publisher: Double Day & Company; 1957
- Language: English
- LIbrary of Congress Catalog Number: 57-5536
