Eisenbrauns posted a thing on the facebook about books in homes… and it provoked me to respond. And that provoked me to wonder about other folks and their childhoods and the books in their homes back then.
In my home my parents spent all their money, which wasn’t much anyway, on cigarettes, bowling, and pet food. So we didn’t have more than half a dozen books in the house and a very old set of Britannica’s that my mother was given by her brother (my uncle).
Half a dozen books was the family library of my childhood. I guess that’s why I have more.
So, how many books did you have in your childhood home?
