I'm reading an interesting series of books. At least I find them interesting! They are the journals of a young woman who lived here and they're from the mid 1850's. Her father was a wealthy lumberman and merchant and her brother eventually donated the house that's the library where I work. A lot of it is rather tedious but every so often a passage will come up that makes it all worth it! I'm on the third of five and it looks like I'm probably the one person who's read that far since it was transcribed in the 1990's. It made that new book sound when I opened it.
