There's very few things my mom will splurge on.
Lucky for me, we share a love for old books.
I started collecting the classics when I was in my early teens. I checked off most of the celebrated novels and poetry books on my list but never really got carried away with fairy tales until recently. I feel that as I grow older, I grow more obsessed with the stories I grew up with. Anyway, besides The Jungle Book, a few days ago I came across (another) copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, as well as copies of Pinocchio and Hans Christian Anderson's Fairy Tales. All of them are extremely old and come with the original illustrations. I care and I'm a nerd for saying so.
