A wry, behind-the-curtain peek into the world of antiques and their obsessive owners—while still alive and after their passing, SDPT confronts the reader with the humorous realities of their own collecting passions.

While digging deep into the basements, attics, and souls of the most interesting collectors imaginable, traveling from one odd house call to the curious next, resale predicaments will confound your every turn. Be careful where you step, watch what you touch, and gird your heart—Antiques Roadshow, this ain’t.

Some of her memories of growing up as the youngest of ten in an immigrant family are funny, some poignant and all are entertaining. She give you a picture of life during the long years she lived.

#3 1960 – What A Year It Was

I recommend this book for anyone born in the 50’s or 60’s. It is such a fun way to look back and reminisce about the good old day. And, this book mentions it all from stories, artwork, music, and politics. Anyone who remembers Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will appreciate this book.

#4 The Giving Tree – Shel Silverstein

This classic by Shel Silverstein is especially likely to make adults nostalgic for their childhood. As you continue reading the story of a tree who readily gives up everything for a boy who grows throughout the years, you will remember the lessons you took from the story as a kid while viewing the lessons with an even deeper understanding now.

#5 Ella Enchanted – Gail Carson Levine

This book instantly captivated readers when it was released by telling the story of a girl who is cursed and must, therefore, be obedient and do every single thing she is told to do. It was such a childhood classic that it was made into a movie, so of course, it’s sure to make you feel nostalgic when you pick it up again.
