📚 Book Dreams of the Past

By Kerri

When I was younger – and much more foolish about how I expected my future to be – I thought that I’d be fortunate enough (somehow) to be able to collect first editions of my favorite books.

I recently rediscovered a list of the books I had planned to eventually purchase:

This is a short list, all things considered. Back when I wrote it, I thought owning first editions of these titles would somehow get me respect. I thought people who would eventually visit me would be impressed.

Back then, I thought that was what would matter – impressing other people. Obviously, that isn’t true.

I own copies of all of these books. They’re not first editions. Nobody cares about my books except me.

And I like it that way.
