As some of you know, I love picture books, especially older ones. You also might know that I like to scrounge through thrift stores and yard sales for books. Seriously, how can anyone pass up a book for a dime? That's how much softcovers cost at our local Salvation Army. Hardcovers are a quarter. Every now and then I come across a real treasure ... at least to me.
These 3 books are such treasures. I found It Was A Short Summer, Charlie Brown and He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown at the Salvation Army for a quarter each. You're In Love, Charlie Brown I found at a yard sale before we moved. Of course, they're pretty ragged and tattered, but I don't mind. All are hardcover and were printed between 1968-1970. I had all 3 of these books when I was a kid, but they were lost over the years. Because of that, I don't mind that these have ragged corners, are stained, have slight tears, and so forth. It's a thrill for me to find a 40-42 year old treasure like this.
How about you -- find any treasures lately?
