Reading without tears. Part I.

This book has always been in my house. I've always loved old books, a  passion which increased when I worked in a bookshop in Edinburgh where they taught me how to repair old editions.  Reading without tears  was published in 1911 so I guess it belonged to my grandparents. I wish I could have more information but I would need to go to a medium. So I can only express my long time fascination with this book and share it with you.

  5. I must confess I would have gone more to our lectures if the book had rhymes and drawings... Being totally serious, I think I will use it with some of my younger students.

  6. OMG!! This book is a real treasure! It reminds me of the one my mum taught me to read and write with. 'Reading Without Tears' will cloud your eyes with tears... of joy. Worst tag line ever? Probably, but I really like your blog. ;-)
