I’m giving you a little peek at another slice of my life. I have 161 Little Golden Books published between about 1950 and 1984. They are all pre-bar code. That means none of them have the bar code printed on them. The first and easiest thing I do when I look for a book I might want is eliminate any that have the bar code on them. That is much easier than opening them to see date published.
This picture is taken in the Public Library. I loaned them about 120 of my books for display. Sorry the picture is not better, but you can get the idea. The display is for this month – the month of February.
This is one of the things I did ‘just because’ and it has became rather a white elephant now. I don’t know what to do with them. I have never been a big spender or a shopper by any means, but I do have a lot of “stuff” to take care of. I see the uselessness of accumulating. The fun was in the collecting, not in the possessing of collectibles.
I could have avoided the problem if I had heeded this scripture: I John 2:17 (NIV) “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”
