Anniversary Gift Displayed

Steven gave me a signed, first edition of Chaim Potok's The Chosen for our 10th anniversary last week. I finally got around to displaying it.

It's right there with all my scholarly works, meaning all the books I had to buy and use to get my degree in English. (You'll notice the lovely, bright orange "Used Saves" sticker on one of the spines.) The Chosen has taken its place among the great literary works, another first-edition Potok, my Ray Bradbury collection, and peeking out from behind it, you'll see the not-so-scholarly Twilight series. I wouldn't want it all to be serious, you know!

And fittingly, my little bluebird of happiness resides on the shelf with my most favorite of books.

Wow - my daughter love Chaim Potok. As a grade school assignment, she wrote him a letter. He responded on her letter and sent it back. She still has the letter.
