I read all kinds of books now and am amazed at all of the free titles available to me now just for downloading.

Dear Hobbledchit, I also like stories published in the 1880s. The drawings are just beautiful. I also like Texas. I had a wonderful time living in Texas for a while. Anyway, welcome to this forum. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Welcome, Hobbledchit! A similar treasure trove inherited from my Dad's stepfather enriched my youth. Among dozens of books from the 1800's was a bound collection of all the Harper's Weekly newspapers from 1876. How I loved reading those papers: Custer's defeat at Little Bighorn was on a middle page, advertisements for hernia trusses were on the front pages, and people were astonished that Samuel Tilden so handily won the presidential election, yet was later declared loser after 20 disputed electoral votes were given to Rutherford Hayes.
Nothing since has matched the joy of those yellowing pages.
