A Very Special Gift from a Friend.

A little more than a week ago, I posted THIS. If you'll read all the way to the end of that post, you'll see that I mention only needing three more books to completely rebuild my mother's book collection, the one we lost most of during Hurricane Opal in 1995. 


Well, today this came in the mail.



That's a first edition from 1979. The book is in terrific condition. Probably better condition than my mother's copy before it suffered irreparable water damage. Jessica (Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile) bought it for me. I cannot adequately express how much this means to me. Thank you, Jessica.
