Trash to Treasure

I usually have lousy luck at yard sales (mostly because I have no eye for potential beauty or usefulness), but look what I salvaged out of a pile of used books this weekend: fifteen volumes of hardback Reader’s Digest condensed classics (1964-1976 editions).

Aren’t the covers lovely? And each one is different.

I stopped at fifteen since I wasn’t sure I’d have room on the shelf for more, but I should have bought them out. (I left at least half a dozen of these beauties behind.)

Anyway. I just wanted to show you all.

  1. It’s so good to see your appreciation for shelf uniformity and satisfaction in a perfect line of digests. The covers are so great! What a great find đŸ™‚

  2. When my mother moved into her house, the woman [not entirely] vacating the place left shelves of these behind. I’m fond of them – they remind me of my grandmother’s house, and of my husband’s grandmother’s, too. The covers make me want to display them face-out!
