I bought my very first book waaayyy back in 1979 when I was 10 years old, it was the original Boxcar Children...before it was a series. I bought it a library sale, it was a former library book, worn and well read. I was there with my Grandma, in a tiny little town in North Dakota, it cost me 10 cents and I was very proud because it was my first "chapter" book. I still have that book and I have read it more times than I can count, even read it again about a year ago and am looking forward to the day I am a grandma and can read to my grandchildren. That first book lead me down a path of book collecting, the strong desire to one day be a librarian (which I haven't done...yet), but became a book store owner instead, which I have loved since the day I started back in 2007. I love all books and if you are looking for something not listed, please don't hesitate to message me.
