My Vintage Reader's Digest Books12:00 AM
Today I spent a little time organizing my Reader's Digest Books. I hadn't given them a home again since the carpeting was installed so it was time!
They were my Grandma's books and I treasure them. I enjoy reading the same stories she spent time reading.
They are also fun to place here and there around the house for extra pattern and color.
The oldest books I have are from 1969 (above). Back then they mixed up the prints and color throughout the year.
In the early seventies they began using a specific print each year, but with every new volume they would switch up the color.
Some of my favorite prints:
I just thought I might as well snap a few photo's since I had them all out.
My husband really wants me to part with them.
I just can't.
I think I will be fine with reading the newer books without the pretty covers, and then passing them along. That's a little compromise and a lot of reading.
Have you read any great books lately?
