Clothes and toys, recipes and jokes, advice and prejudice: we all have to handle all sorts of hand-me-downs every day. Tell us about some of the meaningful hand-me-downs in your life.
Meaningful hand-me downs for me have been books. I don’t mind getting books that come from a second-hand stores which were read by many. I love everything about a hand-me-down books. I love the smell, the slightly bent corners and even the colour.
My mother is quite a well read lady and she has handed me many a book over the years which I was very happy to receive. Some of the best books I’ve read come with a recommendation from mom.
I am very happy that all of my daughters are readers as well, even the little one. She loves funny books. She makes us all smile so much because when she gets into what she’s reading she laughs out loud. I love it; reading is much better than watching cartoons all day.
So, I am really grateful for all the books I have been handed over the years.
