I love old books. Their lovely cloth covers and brown-edged pages remind me of the time before television and smartphone addiction. This past weekend, Andrew and I found some second-hand book treasures that made my heart happy:
Oh, so exciting! I've read all of the Lewis books before (of course), but have yet to read The Swiss Family Robinson or the Five Little Peppers And How They Grew. I also picked up David Copperfield, Jo's Boys, and The Wind in the Willows.
Also, I added to my small, but ever-growing cookbook collection:
The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever: I've heard Jessica Fisher highly recommend this book...so I picked it up, even though I don't have a bread machine (yet!).
The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook: I already have The Silver Palate Cookbook (it's the source of an out-of-this-world carrot cake and what I've dubbed THE Chocolate Cake!) and The New Basics Cookbook by the same authors. Love these cookbooks, though they are a bit more on the gourmet side.
Better Homes and Garden's New Cook Book: I found the 1965 edition and it has these fabulous old-fashioned pictures!
And, my golden find....a hardback edition of Julia Child's The Way to Cook! Oh. My. Goodness.
It is complete with color photographs!
I'm so eager to try my hand at a Julia Child recipe. :)
Do you have any of these cookbooks? If so, please recommend your favorite recipe to me!
Do you love old books, too? My dream is to have a personal library filled with them one day...with cozy chairs and large, sunny windows. *sigh*
