So Many Books.......



Jim Reed calls his shop on Third Avenue downtown, Jim Reed Books / Museum of Fond Memories. I will admit that this extensive collection of memorabilia is for a photographer, the ultimate photo op, but his stash of old books, which line the walls and engulf an entire room, are pretty impressive as well.

I have to watch my visits,  as I'm already starting to resemble his collection of books right here at home!

Remember Burgess Meredith as the man who finally had enough time to read, then broke his glasses? Ah, the Twilight Zone!

I have to give mine away. We have been taking some to Brookhaven where a lot of seniors live. If anyone needed a book to help them pass the time, it would be one of them.

Oh, this photo of yours, looks like a candy store, to me. :-) And obviously, it resembles that, to you too! Since you are having a difficult time, resisting his "goodies." :-)
