Cute. Here's a little boy surprised to get books for Christmas, and not in a good way. All in good fun ;)

Like wine, they only get better, yes? Old books are old friends. We learn how to cull and keep and be with good company over the years. Here are some photos of old books. I like them because it's a testament to their value. They wouldn't be around for so long if readers didn't think they were of some importance. I myself have a lot of old books, carefully preserved and kept in bookshelves (that are dusted often, mind you). I like their smell, the feel of their weight in my hands. It's a piece of history, of life, of a moment in time.

"These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves."-- Gilbert Highet
