Recently when I was with Other Half previewing an art auction I saw that the
auction house was featuring a Book Sale, too! Hurray! Lots and lots of books to look through–the vast number of them was overwhelming–after a while some books seemed to stand out, not for their interest, but because they were so UNinteresting! I began to play around in my mind to assemble a bunch of books that would be humorous as selections in a guest room if you were staying overnight.
Ah, you would think–nice—a nice little bunch of books on the bookshelves to read later tonight after I’ve unpacked. And later, when the appointed time came to settle back and relax until an early morning breakfast in the morning, you would reach for one of the books and—-put it back! reaching for another.
Here are the titles that might be there. Do any of them tempt you?
Everyday Lives of the Incas
Thomas’ Register of American Manufacturers
The Peterkin Papers
Woman’s Day Book of House Plants
1952 Bituminous Coal Annual
Samantha in Saratoga
A Second Book of Operas
The Seven Ages of Washington
The Young McKinley
Next year stay at someone else’s house!
