A Blast from the Past: Vintage Book Club Mailers

0


This brought back memories for me. I'd circle all of the stuff I wanted in the tissue-thin mailers, shove them in my backpack so I could take them home to discuss with my mom, and then find them wadded up at the bottom of the pack three weeks after they had been due. There's a wide assortment of companies represented in the linked post - you're sure to find one that brings a little nostalgia to your day.

I still have a few "Dynamite!" magazines from the 70s....good times....!!

And I teach middle school English and STILL get excited when the new catalogues arrive in my mailbox! The newsprint smell and my insatiable desire for a new book always accompanies them!

that brought back great memories. i loved everything about those little book catalogs. selecting my books, waiting for them, getting them, reading them...and then doing it all over again.

YEAH! I went crazy ordering books from the time I learned to read in second grade! Later, maxing out with 10 books checked out from our public library every week or two, and I still love reading just about anything.

How is it possible that my daughter (sophomore in college now) didn't get the reading bug? I was so sure it would be genetic but we've always had tons of books around.
