More Book Finds

The library book sale yielded more “great stuff”, as Jeff likes to say. Here are some of what we carried home:

  • The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, Hannah Whitall Smith. Small paperback version.
  • God on the Bowery, Charles J. St. John. I think this is from the late 1940’s. I can’t read Roman numerals. 😛 The book is about the famous rescue mission in New York City.
  • The Modern Handbook for Girls, Olive Richards Landers. 1933. This one is like the modern version, The Daring Book for Girls, with less illustrations.
  • Twenty-Six Centuries of Agrarian Reform. A nerdy historical book.
  • The “Have-More” Plan, Ed & Carolyn Robinson. First Edition, 1947. I jumped up and down with glee when I saw this homesteading classic. Oh, wow, is this terrific!

We also found three Latin grammar books from the 1960’s. Those will go onto e-bay (unless you are currently homeschooling and learning Latin, leave me a message!)

We had a full day on Saturday. More posts to come.

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
