Mailbox Monday – December14 – Jane Austen fans will appreciate

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

On Saturday we had my family Christmas and I received the best, most thoughtful gift from my Aunt Betty.  pp1pp2pp3

My great-aunt Mary was an independent woman who never married and she loved books as much as I do.  This 1919 edition of Pride & Prejudice is the one that she used in high school!  There are a few homework assignments and notes sprinkled throughout.  I love it and love that my Aunt Betty (a retired elementary school librarian) chose me to give it a new life.

What book is most special in your library?

  2. That is extremely cool. I’ve got a music book of my father’s that’s dated back in the 40s, I think.

    • I love old books in general, but it’s so special when they belonged to family.
