{5 Cent Books}

Photobucket

Here are some vintage books I purchased for 5 cents each clustered together (you can't get much for 5 cents these days). The covers have seen better days but they are filled with incredible illustrations and lines such as this;

"Take me back!"
"Aren't you-back?"
"Take me back some more!"
She drew his head to her breast;
he could feel her heart now almost against his lips.
"Mine" she whispered.

(Racing Pace, 1933)
