I've got a very cool 1940s surgical nursing book I'll be listing on the shop some time today. It has some notes taken in it by the student who had used it in the 40s and tons of fascinating pictures. Be sure to check it out or let me know if interested!😸 Link in bio

i bought these books from a local charity shop over the weekend two of them are from the 1940s!! i’m not sure about the other one, it says 1920 on the cover, but i can’t tell if that’s about the year it was published or something else!! thank you all for the suggestions of things i can watch!! ive already watched a couple of them, but i’m going to work my way through some of the others!! i think i’m going to start with either ‘the handmaids tale’ or ‘pride and prejudice’! have you seen either of those?💕✨

Next up on the list of audiobooks that have been waiting their turn for quite some time...
“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”.
Also one I hear is going to be, or already has been, turned into a movie.
.
Not a thriller, like I have been reading lately, but set in the 1940s. 
Historical Fiction...The other love of my life.😊
.
So, as with the others, I’ll give you my review when I’m finished.
📚🎧😊🎧📚
***REVIEW***
.I absolutely ADORED this book, and have NO IDEA how they turned it a movie that will do it proper justice. I’ll just have to watch & see. But I have the feeling they’ll turn it into some kind of Nicolas Sparks-like romantic CRAP abomination. Again... I’ll not judge until I watch it though.
***YEP***
Watched the movie...NOTHING like the book except very small pieces. And YES. They turned it into a Hollywood love story... 😖BLECK😖...2 thumbs👎🏻👎🏻 down for the movie!!! .

I love finding vintage sewing or knitting items. Most of my finds are charity shop finds that cost less than $1 and this book was no exception. I found this #patons #knitting book which dates back to the 1940s and had not the shop stuck a  pricing sticker on the front would have been undamaged 😒. My favourite page is the back page showing the Australian Launceston building.

I can’t get over the neon dust jackets on these books from the 1940s!! Created by Brian Cook, not even the well-illustrated contents can compete. Currently in my shop. Brian Cook designed the dustjackets for his family’s publishing company Batsford books. He was given complete freedom at the age of 21 to do what he liked with the dustjackets because people often threw them away anyway. He described the choice of colours he chose as blatant, bizarre, strident and unreal. I love them. 
I had never heard of him until I came across these, but I certainly recognised his later work - posters for the railways and the British Tourist Board. I’m going to stop now or I’ll talk myself into keeping them.

Some of my Poppa's books from the late 1930s and mid 1940s.

These vintage books were actually English Non Fiction and Fiction from the 1940's about World War Two. My favourite topic of History.

January, 1953. I love finding old books with inscriptions inside. I thought this was a particularly lovely find due to the title of the book and the very sweet and poignant messages written inside. This was found in a charity shop in York today. ✨ It was too sweet for me to leave without. Especially with the theme of #loneliness abound throughout. Wonder who it used to belong to? I'll give it a good home. 🏡📚 #books #antiquebooks #1950s #thelonely #charityshopfinds #bookcollection #inscriptions #oldwriting #mermaidbooks #antiques #newhome #toomanybooks #1940sbooks #finds #oldfinds #thriftstore #oxfambooks (The #biblequote in it was actually kinda relevant to my own feelings right now too...?

🌿🌸🌿🌼A lovely pair of vintage gardening books. Simple, yet beautiful. I'd love to think of something to do with them (besides reading and admiring them) but I don't have a creative bone in my body, so here they sit. 😒  Buy them! Make them something wonderful! Or just read 'em. 😀

🌿🌸🌿🌼A lovely pair of vintage gardening books. Simple, yet beautiful. I'd love to think of something to do with them (besides reading and admiring them) but I don't have a creative bone in my body, so here they sit. 😒 Buy them! Make them something wonderful! Or just read 'em. 😀 . ______________________________ ✨www.etsy.com/shop/thewhitepepper✨ . . #thewhitepeppervintage  #etsyshopowner  #etsysellersofinstagram  #vintageseller  #etsyvintageshop  #vintageshopowner  #gardening  #gardenbook  #vintagegarden  #1940sbooks  #gardenencyclopedia  #green  #gogreen  #bookstagram  #bookisheyecandy  #simpleyetbeautiful  #flowers  #floral  #gardeningbooks

The simple elegance of vintage books can be so inspiring. Long before Adobe Illustrator, people illustrators used pencils, pens, rulers, exacto knives, and hot wax to create art and arrange it on a page or book cover. Both of these knitting books are from the 1940s.

Kinda a weird year. Makes me want to read some George Orwell. #bookquotes  #booksfromthe40s #1940sbooks #1984 #orwell #georgeorwell #twoplustwo #freedomistruth #2plus2equals4
The second autograph book. Both in excellent condition. This one is from 1942 and belonged to a gal named Ruth/Ruthie. Sweet notes throughout. Up on etsy soon, after a bit more research. #theaddict #vintagefinds #1940s #1940sbooks #vintageautographbook #autographbook #etsyseller #etsy #vintagepersonalcollection
Thank you so much to the woman who brought in these early edition Nancy Drew 1-56. (Wish I'd gotten your name). This would be good for someone who wants to have a Nancy Drew collection, but doesn't want the legwork of finding them in series. $50 for the complete classic set. #nancydrew #1940sbooks #oldbooks #detective #mysterynovels #portmoody #vancouver #vintagevancouver #vancity #classicnancydrew #nancydrewseries

Really enjoying my new book! Actually new this time too, usually I get my books from charity shops or independent sellers, but I got this one from #RAFConingsby.
'Women of #RAFTempsford- #Churchill's Agents of #WartimeResistance' by #BernardOConnor. Fantastic to see a #womanshistory book written by a man.
