About

Making the World a Prettier Place with Vintage Books

While cleaning off my shelves during a Spring cleaning flurry I thought others might also enjoy the unique charm and character of old books. Books were listed, sold and proved my theory right. Old books look great on shelves, in funny little nooks around the house, as a coffee table, in a library, as a lamp or in a million other fun ways. Look around your house and see where you could use a little splash of color or yesteryear charm.

Retro Reading is a shop of vintage and antique sets of books. The sets are typically compiled according to color since they are intended for decorative use. All books are a minimum of 20 years old, though most are MUCH older than that! Most of the books within each set have some to extensive wear, this is part of what adds so much character to your shelf/room when you use them as decor (see my additional policies below for more info).

Not sure how exactly to use vintage books as part of your decor? Look at these great examples to get you started:

Additional policies and FAQs
Please expect wear and/or damage to these books. Most of them are at least from the 1970s or earlier they have already had a long good life before coming to you! Some of the wear and/or damage you might see (and love!) includes:
*worn corners
*flappy binding
*notes
*inscriptions
*discoloration of pages and binding
*dog earred pages
*torn pages
*slight water damage (not as common)
*etc.

These are the little imperfections make each collection have so much character and unsurpassed charm!

If you have a question or concern about a particular book please convo me PRIOR to purchasing!
