  3. Those books really are a sight for sore eyes. After my dad passed away last August, we had to clear my parents' home and my dad's numerous book shelves. There were some lovely books, which used to belong to my grandparents too. We couldn't keep them all, so gave a lot to charity, but the old ones were very difficult to part with, so I kept a selection. xxx

    1. I'm deeply sorry that you lost your dad ♥

      It's good that you saved some of the books to cherish xx

  4. Wonderful pictures as always Yvonne. Aren't book spines just the most amazing things that we probably don't appreciate enough. Congrats to Willie for his win. I must admit I read the riddle for your last competition & I did not even know the answer until I read Willie's comment !!!! Lucky some of us are on the ball !!! Have a great weekend Yvonne xxx

    1. Thank you Julie. I've seen some bookmarks made from the spines of old books, and they look perfect. I may try my hand at that some day. Thank you for dropping by. I hope the next riddle is more to your liking xx
