Not exactly a book review...
When my grandmother passed away almost a year ago, my dad asked if I would like to have some of her old books. Um. Absolutely. No question. I was thinking they were going to be some old novels that I would never read, but would still keep for sentimental reasons. I was wrong. I wound up with her high school yearbook (Class of 1945!), her commercial arithmetic book, and her shorthand textbook from her college days. Later on, my dad also sent along a New Testament that was owned by a relative of mine who I still can't seem to find in the family tree.
I thought that new game manual smelled good.
It really is amazing how books can make an impact on us, even if we never actually read them.
Emily is feeling awfully nostalgic today, hence this seemingly random topic. But, she's almost finished with the book she's reading now and will have a new review for you next week.
