So I went ahead and ordered the pretty Rilla of Ingleside copy. The copy I had before was tolerable, but as this is one of my absolute favourite books of all time I decided it was time for me to buy myself the copy the with the cover I had fallen in love with on Pinterest. The pretty purple one with the cake and the train and Dog Monday on the cover. I NEEDED ITTTT.
So I went to Amazon and bought it and NOW IT ARRIVED AND I'M SO HAPPY. (I was quite scared Amazon would make a mistake and end up shipping another copy with a different cover. But it didn't. *Sigh of relief*)
Looooook. Every chapter has a little picture in front of it. This one has a light feather (you can't see it very well in this picture because of the lighting) - OH MY GOODNESS. I have to re-read this tonight and bawwwl helplessly over My Darling Walter. I have to re-live all the amazing feels. This book drives me crazy with the sadness and the happiness and simplistic-feels... OHHH.
Lucy Maud Montgomery is such a Gem. The WAY she writes. I'm jealous.
Look how goooorgeous. Are you in love yet?
And the Spine is swellegant as well. I always appreciate elegant and pretty spines. Ohh, I love new books. I also love really old books too - books that crumble and have care-worn spines and pages loosened with age. Those have scope for the imagination and we can imagine girls our age reading them in the 30's and the 40's.
But I also love Pristine books. New books - I'm their first owner - and it's all new and pretty and shiny and AHHH. (Actually my RoI copy was 'used', but it looks like new, sooo.)
|No, I don't like Amish fiction. I tired of Amish fiction - I used to like it. :-)|
All in all, I'm SUPER happy with it. Like, ridiculously so. :-D
Do you order books you already have for a prettier cover?
Do you prefer Old books or Pristine ones?
