New for Old

I finally bit the bullet and got a new copy of Microserfs (remember how I told you it was so well read both the back and front cover had fallen off?)

I’d wanted a copy to match my last one complete with garish, blocky yellow cover. Luckily there is eBay and I found a barely used version on there for a few pounds.

My boyfriend thinks the need to have exactly the same book is bordering on obsessive but then he doesn’t quite see books like I do!

All I have to do now is read it again to break it in.

  1. I once ironed, repaired and placed in bigger binder/plastic protective pages the favorite cookbook my mom had used since the 1950’s – – – there is something to be said for holding onto favorites! 🙂

      1. Yes, but worth it – I did that project in 2005 or so – she likes that she can open the rings, pull out the plastic protected page she wants, and if it get’s flour or what have you on it, clean-up of the page is a breeze – 🙂 Was definitely worth it!
