BW3: 52 Books Bingo - Something Old

Courtesy of Melusineh

Old books smell of dust and the literary smoke of history, 
of writer soul and the ink of eternity. ~Terri Guillemets

I have something old on my mind, but what may be old to me, may be different for you, depending on your age. It's hilarious when I read of young characters who think their parents or friends as ancient in a story and they are in their fifties and sixties

One of our 52 Books Bingo categories is Something Old and there are a variety of ways to go with this. If you look at synonyms and words related to old, you will find - aged, ancient, vintage, old fashioned, traditional, antique, ramshackled, enduring, maternal or paternal, lasting, gothic or dusty to name a few.

So your mission is to read a book with something old which could be, but are not limited too:

  • Takes place prior to or is written prior to the 10th century. 
  • Takes place in the olden days (a period of time you feel some affection for).
  • Takes place in the Old West
  • Takes place in Old Hollywood.
  • Takes place in the old future.
  • In which the character is an old fogie or old maid.
  • In which the character is searching for something old.
  • In which a character has old fashioned ideas.
  • A book with a word that rhymes with old in the title.
  • A book with old in the title 
  • A book with something old on the cover 
  • A book published by Knopf Doubleday Vintage Books or Penguin's Vintage, Poetry, Classics or collections
  • Spell out old by reading three books that have a word on the cover that starts with O,L,D.
  • A dusty, antique, or vintage book which has been on your shelves for quite a while.
  • Pick a synonym and read a book with that word in the title.

Have fun, be creative, follow rabbit trails and see where they lead you.
