MEME: Booking Through Thursday

This week’s question is suggested by Island Editions:
Do you have a favourite book, now out of print, that you would like to see become available again? (I have several…)

I don't know. I don't buy a lot of books; I've bought more in the past two years than I've most likely bought in my life. I've always been a library reader. And the library tends to have older editions of books, so I don't even know what books are out of print.

The only books I can think of would be the Bruno and Boots series, beginning with This Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall. But even those, I unpacked from the basement when my son was ready to read them. They are not readily available online as new books, but there are plenty at the library!

I have tried to buy some of the Noddy books by Enid Blyton a few years ago, and they are not easy to find, but they are also not politically correct, which is why they are not being reissued. We found a few when my son was little and the TV show was on CBC and PBS.


  1. I love how libraries will carry old books until they fall apart. You find so many treasures that way!

  2. tink - I borrowed The Stranger, and it had a stamp on it from 1948! It added to the atmosphere of the book so much.

  3. Libraries are good for finding older books, aren't they?

  4. Enid Blytons are great reads, politically correct or not! I own a lot of those!
