Welcome to my blog! My name is Shauna, and I absolutely adore all things vintage. This blog was initially created for a Media Writing assignment, as I am in the process of receiving my associate degree in Journalism in hopes of becoming a book publisher, editor and eventual author. I have previously collaborated on a crime novel with my best friend Alexis, and am in the process of writing a novel that will be apart of a series entitled “Seven Wonders.”
I am a huge bookworm and coffee addict. Everywhere you look in my bedroom, books are shoved into almost every little nook and cranny. My goal is to one day have a library in my house, which will also contain an antique desk from the 17th century where I can write my novels.
I am delightfully pessimistic and slightly cynical.
What vintage books do I own?
I own quite a few novels ranging from the early 1800s to the late 1900s. My favorites (based on antique quality) include:
- “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy, a 1952 edition. It’s a special edition in an awesome box – I picked this novelty up at “The Secret Garden” located in NJ.
- “The Pipwick Papers” by Charles Dickens, estimated to being an early 1800s edition. This one was a gift from my boyfriend, Nick.
- “The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer, an early 1900s edition. Also a gift from my boyfriend.
- “Winesburg, Ohio” by Sherwood Anderson, an edition from 1937. Purchased in a vintage bookstore located in New Hope, NJ.
