****Only 2 books came into the house this week. One was a library book I have had on hold for a month and finally it was it my turn!
'Killing Lincoln'This was an excellently written book! I love history and Lincoln is one of my favorite people in history. Mr. O'Reilly did an excellent job of bringing this time in history to you in a story fashion rather than a history book. Lots of little facts I had never heard before, drama and suspense. I read it in 2 days! Review will be up a day or two!

The second book was one I ordered from Alibris and came from the UK. Another O. Douglas book: 'The Day of Small Things'. This is a smaller sized book and in very good condition with beautiful dust jacket still intact. This was written in 1933 and I got a wonderful surprise when I opened the book... A first edition! That was not in the description of the book when I bought it.
|such clean crisp pages!|
I wish I could show you what beautiful condition this book is in!
Although not a book I did find this cute Book of the Month Club clock in a junk store. It is all plastic and works great. I have it on my bookshelf of course!
