I can’t believe I got to touch this book!

  There is a bookstore that I love because unlike other used item stores, they are organized and smell good! Some of their inventory comes from estate sales. One time, the sales person was so excited about these books they had just gotten in, she let us see them. And touch them. And it was SO COOL! Although not quite in mint condition (they had some smoke damage), they were remarkably well preserved for being one of the first copies of Captain Cook’s voyages. The pages felt like dollar bill paper. And look how they spelled Hawaii!
