Kindest wishes for a Happy Christmas.
From David W. White
I’m a little late on the Christmas train, but they sure don’t make handwriting like that any more.
Don’t get me wrong – I love ebooks, and you’ll have to pry my kindle out of my cold, dead hands. But there remains something intangible and intriguing in the sheer age – and history – of some books.
In any case, I’m a sucker for marginalia – I collected dozens of these types of dedications when I worked at a bookstore, and now you can find a new dedication here every Friday. Browse through them here!
