Bubbly Tuesday

like my instagrams? follow me @ steshjordan I wanna follow you too!!

I have been volunteering my time down at the Friends of the Phoenix Library.  A non-profit organization who collects donated books to resell and recycle in order to raise money for the library systems in Arizona.  I love books, all kinds of books.  It could be because my family owns a bookstore in my hometown so growing up books were a major part of my childhood.  These days ebooks, kindles, books on tape are all very popular and as much as I love technology there seems to be something about the smell of a hardback book.  Each time a person volunteers at The Friends of the Phoenix Library, you are able to take 5 books home with you.  Distressed books that are not able to be sold, but none the less 5 books.  What gems I found!! I was so excited.  Two vintage coffee table books on fashion and the hardback version of "What Would Jackie Do?" (a woman's guide to living in style such as Jackie O.) I am such a lucky girl to have found these gems in old pins no one wanted! I guess it is true, one persons trash is another persons treasure! Happy Bubbly Tuesday Friends!

So neat!!! And great finds.

I'm with you, there's just something about a hardback book. I just can't use a Kindle.

What a great way to spend your time :) Volunteering is always so rewarding in itself, but it doesn't hurt that you got to take those gems home!

what amazing finds! Interesting your family owns a bookstore! My mom is a retired librarian, so books and libraries have always been big at my house :).
