A Tale of Two Cities

Coloradolady at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com invites you to drop by for some great vintage finds.
I found this in a stack of books that was being thrown away. It is not my kind of reading, but thought it might be on interest to some of you. In the back of the book is "Afterword" by Edgar Johnson on July 4,1962. It is in good condition. I checked it out on E-Bay. It was listed far $75. In my opinion, the worth of anything is what someone is willing to pay far it.




If anyone would like to have this book, just let me know. Will be happy to send it to you. (No Charge)

Well as you said it's only worth what someone is willing to. We had to read this in high school and it wasn't my thing, so I'll leave it to someone who would love having it.

Enjoy your night!

This book's cover looks so familiar. I think I had to read it in a high school English class. That would have been about 1962. How interesting!
If no one else wants it I would love to have it.

I read it years ago but didn't really like it. We have The Old Curiosity Shop on Masterpiece next Sunday which I didi enjoy so am looking forward to that in Dicken's 200th birthday year. What a shame the book you posted was being thrown out! Surely a library with a Friends would be glad to have it!
Cheers!

How kind of you to rescue this book to a new owner. I "rescued" a few vintage items from thrift stores only because I didn't want history thrown in a dump. You've inspired me to "give" them away. Have a lovely week.

We were just speaking of Sidney Carton yesterday---an unforgettable hero.

Not so vivid as Scrooge or David or Tiny Tim, but memorable.

I LOVE passing on books!

OH LV -- I think you should sell it and use the money for something special that you've always wanted -- or buy a book or ten for your great grandson .... this was wonderful that you rescued this -- it is valuable and a wonderful story (but I already own the book, and don't have any room AT ALL for more!)

It's a lovely book and a terrific story, probably the only Dickens I fell into and grabbed from the start. (So many are so ponderous!) I hope it finds a good home -- it looks like a beautiful edition.

My daughter love to read just about any kind of books and I think she'll like this one too.
