Booked All Week

and next week, too

Found in Used Books, #1

with 4 comments

I bookmarked this post from The Guardian about a week and half ago, and you should check it out. It’s about “The private life of books”, a concept I love, and a series of letters found inside an old copy of Isaac Asimov tales.

It also leads nicely into an idea I’ve had a while for a feature in which I post pictures of things found in used books, of which I have a steadily growing and admired collection.

So here’s the first: a Reggie Jackson baseball card found in a copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, by D.H. Lawrence.

    • My boyfriend used to collect baseball cards, he says that since it’s an early ’90’s reissue of an older card, it isn’t worth much, but maybe it will be someday. A quick google search seems to confirm his answer 🙂 I don’t know anything about baseball, but apparently Reggie was a pretty popular player.
