Reading up

Lately I’m loving the whatwasthatbook group on lj. Not only for its ability to find lost books (largely kids’ books, but also for the conversation style of its questions. See, for example:

I read this book while I was in late elementary school – probably fifth or sixth grade (around 1999). I found it in my mom’s room and don’t really know a publishing date for it, but I know that it wasn’t new then. The pages had wear and it just had that “old book feel.”

Doesn’t that just make you wish you’d found that same book in your mum’s room when you were a kid?
