New in my house this week, a COMPLETE 28-book series of novels:(Photo of the first eight via Amazon as I couldn’t find my camera to photograph all 28).
These BRAND NEW books are the entire Elsie Dinsmore series by Martha Finley which was very popular when written back in the 1800s! These are obviously re-released/reprints, but still, very cool. I skimmed a few of them; they seem to be an entire life story of a young girl (possibly orphaned) who strives to live a Christian life while having adventures, trying to find out more about her past, and growing up and having grandchildren! I know very little about these, but on first glance, they remind me of my beloved Betsy-Tacy-Tib (and interestingly, even score a mention in one of those!) or Christy or Anne of Green Gables.
I don’t quite know when I’m going to get to these as I am crazy busy, but it still seems very exciting to have received them. A lady at my work (I’m a high school English teacher) picked them up at a library $1 bag book sale and gave them to me. She said she’d never read them, but she couldn’t pass up a bargain, and she figured I would like to have them. Sooo nice!
