I mentioned last week that I was reading The Romance of Stamp Collecting by Ernest A. Kehr, and well, I've gone ahead and finished it since then, so yay me! Okay, that'll do it for today, just wanted to let you know that I read a book, and... of course I'm just messing with you!
I'm not the one you want to do book reviews, so I'll spare you from that, but I did want to take a minute to share a couple of paragraphs from early in the book that really stood out, as I couldn't help but notice the parallels to another hobby that's so near and dear to many of the folks that stop by here, and was mildly curious to know if anyone else noticed the similarities too?
So I've got about a page and a half here, and for your reading convenience they've been broken down into bite-sized paragraphs. And as far context goes, this section picks up just after the first World War has broken out:
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
