I found, finally, one of my older books and saw, again, that the first presumed owner signed and dated the book in a lovely script with a fountain pen. A much later, subsequent owner signed the book, too, and also initialed the last page of text with a date which I can only assume was the day he finished reading. June 22, 1930, the fellow finished reading Stories by English Authors: Ireland. Kinda cool! I like the idea of it, especially seeing that as one gets older, one forgets. (Prepare ye'selves.)

:lol: Yes, it's Thursday, but I don't at all blame you for forgetting. Routines are thrown out the window for a lot of us right now.

It's always very cool finding notations like that in old books. It's fun to wonder about the people who wrote them.

I've put a bookplate with my name in all my hardback Terry Pratchett books (and quite a few other of my books), with the odd thought that I'll be on the other end of someone wondering about me, too, in long years to come.
