Thanks so much to Amberly, The Genealogy Girl, for her generous words about my book Pacific Street at the end of this lovely post about books. If you aren’t following Amberly’s blog, check it out. It’s wonderful.
I have loved books for as long as I can remember. I probably even loved them before that. When I was a teenager there was a certain book I checked out from the library several times. I loved it so much that I asked my mom if I could say that I “lost it” and pay the lost book fee so I could keep it. I was only joking. Mostly. You see, it was out of print and I really wanted my own copy.
That is definitely not the only time I have longed for an out of print book.
