Real Books

I got a kindle for Christmas, which I now really love. I'm very pro reading digital books and have been getting rid of all my 'real' books. (Don't worry, I haven't been throwing them away like some people think, I've been giving them to people/oxfam) 

Who wants a bookshelf full of trashy holiday novels when you could fill them with pretty vintage books which is now my plan.

So I thought I'd share with you some more of my prettyest vintage books.

This 'June' annual is something I found at college when I was doing my foundation year. It was half cut up and I just had rescue it. Its full of jolly dee tales and patronizing advice.






I got the monster book for girls this Christmas.







This one isn't actually a vintage book, but I did get it for Christmas. It's a reprint of a children's book from the 60s about London. I like that they have made amendments at the back of the books about how London is today. Imagine if someone still took tickets at the ticket barriers! I also like imagine what London must have been like.
