Yes, I’m Guilty of Book Love

Does the sight and smell of old books get your heart racing? You would have loved this book fair, over on La Rambla Catalunya! Antique books, rare books, even Shakespeare . . . in Spanish!


Everyone’s got a happy trigger. For my husband, it’s a crumbling Twelfth Century castle to photograph. For my older son, it’s the waves at Huntington in the fall, when the locals have the ocean to themselves again. For my older daughter, some fabulous new vintage find from a store no one’s ever heard of. For my younger daughter, a cavernous medieval basilica in which to sing carols. And for my younger son, my Caboose, a train ride with his dad.

For me, it’s books. And these . . . oh my.


The smell of old leather. The feel of the pages.



Are you a bibliophile, too??

Mine is cookbooks from the 50’s and 60’s…especially if they have notes in the margins and handwritten recipes on scratch paper tucked in the pages. I bought 3 today for my family to give me for Christmas 😉

Ohh!–how lovely! Do share a favorite recipe, once the “gifts” are officially yours! Happy cooking. (I’m jealous.)
