Is Reading a Real Book a Vintage Pastime?

It would seem that with the current smart-phones having the ability to do pretty much anything combined with the popularity of the e-Books reading an actual book would have become passé. However there are many including myself that still enjoy the feel and maybe even the smell of a book, turning the pages, using a fancy bookmark and all the little nuances that enhance the enjoyment of a good read. Used books present a tremendous value for the casual or avid reader, student or researcher. In addition to the monetary savings goodness buying a used book is a good green practice. Some may even use older books that are too worn to read for re-purposing into mixed media or altered art.

A place we discovered when looking for a used book is Connie’s Bookshelf. What an unbelievable variety of used and new books priced for the budget conscious. A recent visit to their shop in the Daytona Flea Market proved fruitful. We were impressed with the wide selection of books that were in a logical order and very easy to search through. Connie and Rick who operate this awesome book store are extremely friendly and they know their books.

Connie’s Bookshelf Book Samples From the Website

A humor and general interest magazine published from 1883 to 1936. Time founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936 solely so that he could acquire the rights to its name.

The original Life magazine provided a glimpse of Society, Literature, Politics and Drama, combined with humor and exceptional illustrations. The two page centerfolds are prized for their decorative value, each issue includes advertisements.

The famous illustrator, Charles Dana Gibson was associated with this magazine from very early in his career until the demise of the magazine in the early 1930s. Life was the very first customer for Gibson’s drawings. The more recent Life Magazine published by Time Inc. did not begin publication until 1936.
