For the past several months I've been selling vintage books on a new Etsy shop, Reading with Scissors - Rare Reads. It's a lot of fun searching for treasures in someone's library and finding new homes for them in other people's libraries.
What's NOT fun is finding something to write about each book in Etsy's Description field. Unless I'm going to read every book (and have you seen my To Read stack??), it's a bear finding something to say.
That's when I came up with a novel idea--novel, get it? I would find original reviews of the books from back in the day on Newspapers.com and let those writers do my talking.
It's been going well, and today I was looking for a good quote for a copy of Coffee Tea or Me? That's when I ran across this review by Edyth T. McLeod. Now, granted, I haven't read the book, but...
well, let's just say if you're planning on buying this one to give your daughter who wants to become a flight attendant, you might want to rethink that. You'll thank me later. Hahaha!
