Once upon a time there was a girl called Sarah. She loved books. It follows logically that she loved bookstores.
One evening she was driving along and decided to stop at her most favorite bookstore - Half-Price Books, a whole warehouse sized bookstore full of like-new second hand books.
She went in looking for three specific books to complete a series that she had, but sadly they were out of stock. She did not come out empty-handed, however. It is nearly impossible for her to come out of a bookstore without at least one book.
This time, her favorite purchase was a beautifully illustrated copy of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". There was a whole display case full of copies of this book, and she could not leave without one. It was such a pretty book that she just had to take some pictures and share it with the world.
If you visit Sarah's house this holiday season, you might just find her reading it aloud by candlelight. She has decided to make it a family tradition each Christmas.
