books, books, books

I've been in the process of cleaning and purging. This has been a long and arduous process. A lot of it has been very hard. I came across all these old vintage-y books that the library and goodwill did not want. I couldn't keep them myself, so the garbage was their only destiny. I had a really hard time doing it, but I cut apart all these wonderful books--salvaging pages, pictures and covers where I could. I came out with a bunch of old hardbound book covers. I'm not sure what I will do with them... but all in all it was a hard thing to take apart and throw away books.

here are some cool finds when I was going through the books
