Collier Junior Classics! Did anyone have these when they were little? Maybe this is why these are my favorite colors to this day. The only books I grabbed when I was younger, were these. When I got a little older, it was all about Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.. I still have these books, and have read some of the stories to the kids when they were little. It's amazing how other things have taken over, like more interactive books, DS games, Ipads, and other things to occupy their time. I wish my kids were more readers, but they follow example, right? I don't just sit down and read that often, I am too guilt ridden thinking I am wasting time and run to do laundry, wash dishes, check on what's going on in the world on TV..etc. More often than not, I can't find one that will completely hold my attention. The ones I have, though.. grabbed me, and I couldn't let them go. I could probably count them on one hand.
The books, though, are a great memory of my childhood. If you notice, there is supposed to be 1-10. My mom wasn't into the magical kind of movies, so I'm pretty sure she just got rid of the "Magic in the Air" Book 3. My brother was a history lover, so I'm pretty sure the "Gifts from the Past" Book 10 is with him. That's fine.. I may jump online and grab the other 2 someday.. just to look at.. on the shelf. :) Then, my practical side, is that even worth it? Probably not, but it's in my mind! Maybe that counts.

2 fun textures added, then erased it off the words of the books. Took a quick couple extra seconds..
