Lovely collection. I've been thinking about starting a Little Free Library... These might be a nice seed. I'm no more deserving than anyone else, just throwing my hat in the ring again.

What a great assortment of "Boys" books. I haven't heard of a couple of those series. The Stirring Stories sound very exciting!

Our company has a "Bookitecture" drive where one can donate books and they'll be used to "Construct" something the kids design (non-destructive to the books of course) and then the books given away as the "structure" is "deconstructed"... These would be great to include.

when i was about 8 years old, i scanned the bookshelves in my favorite used bookstore-specifically looking for the oldest-looking spine. i ended up with "loyal little red coat" from the 1890's, which looks like a lot of these. thank you for your great blog:)
