I wish I could steal from the BYU library




So this is a book from the BYU library and it's pretty dang cool. For an assignment in my grammar class, we got into groups and had to analyze the philosophies driving two different grammar books, and this was the one I checked out. It was published in 1913 and has the original binding, the original pages, and it smells super, super good. (For those of you who love the smell of books, you can only imagine the magical, musty book smell of this one).

Unfortunately it's due three weeks from last Tuesday, but I would keep it if I could, because it's just so awesome. They have books even older than that in the HBLL and it's just cool for us bibliophiles. Wouldn't this book be undeniably awesome on a mantle or something??

I love old books too and that one looks wonderful. Enjoy your 3 weeks with it.

It does sort of make you wish that stealing was not wrong! Very cool--and I can just imagine the great smell.

I love the title of this post! Very compelling. It looks like a very nice book indeed. (You should start scouting D.I. and the like -- you just never know what kind of gems you might come across!)

As cool as it is, I'm sure no one has a hold on it. Renew it!
