Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Today’s Top Ten topic is Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch (too special/valuable, perhaps?)
Ok, so I’m not really a don’t touch kind of girl, so I’m going to be sharing my top 10 most prized possessions with you today. My top 5 are some very early edition Hardy books. These were passed to me from my grandmother. It was a bit bizarre, too, because she knew I had a great love for books but never told me she had them. I didn’t know until they were willed to me.
Far From the Madding Crowd is one of my favorite Hardy books. This was published in 1895.
Desperate Remedies was published 1896.
This Return of the Native was published in 1895.
Tess of The D’Urbervilles is another one of my favorite Hardy books. This was published in 1893.
My copy of A Laodicean was published in 1896.
I also have one 1930 copy of Moby Dick that I try to take good care of.
Now my other 4 most prized possessions are some of my favorite autographed books. I have a set of CoHo’s Slammed Series. Sorry these pics are so small!!
Last but not least…So there you have it! I have a lot more than 10 books that are very special to me, but these all certainly rank at the top! Can’t wait to hear what goodies you have!!!
