Much to my surprise I have about 45 French books of all types and ages. Although most of these are from the late 1800's and early 1900's, the condition of them is excellent.
The reason I collect these in particular is that, #1 I LOVE anything French (don't we all), #2 the smell of old books and #3 one day I will be able to read them all.
Now, I know it sounds crazy to continually buy books that I just keep hidden in a book cupboard. That's why I have now taken them all out for the world to see. I guess it's kind of like admitting I have an addiction to French books. Now I cannot hide it anymore.
C'est la Vie.
