Some of my favorite reading material is by authors from the past. I find it so interesting to pick up on the authors perception of the world during the time period they are writing in, along with their idea of what the future might bring. I get so excited when I find one of these hardcover books at an estate sale. Sometimes, an old book is worth money, but for me the value is more than monetary. It is a sentimental connection, I feel with times past. Anyone else favor old books?
