    So we have matching antique book shelves that my wife happened to come across a few months ago and she's been buying the oldest books she can find to put in there. We restored the shelves as best as we could by reading and watching Youtube videos.

    We found this site:

    http://www.booksbythefoot.com/shop/pc/Little-Vintage-6p166.htm

    They sell antique books by the foot. We'll try buying a foot of their oldest stuff, but they only go back around 150 years. Shit gets expensive quick when you hit books from the 1700s...

    Does anyone else here do this? Any site that sells very old books besides eBay? We're looking for 1700s... we wanna go as old as we can get without breaking the bank.

    It's her new hobby, I'm just playing along.

    You're buying books without any regard as to what books they are?

    man, you really took that comment seriously in that thread. I just use comparisons when speaking about a woman's looks.

    "she looks like _____ but with a bigger ass." havent heard the rating system used since I was probably 15

    I really want 1600s or 1500s. The Vatican library scenes in Angels and Demons are awesome. I wanna go through those books.

    meh, you threw down the condescending, PC answer about rating a woman. it's OK, you're a product of your time.

    Youre such a crotchety old man. lmfao. Literally go back and look at my post. I said that I dont rate women on a 1-10 scale because I dont hang out with douchebags or virgins. Nowhere in that post says its condescending, patronizing, or mysoginistic to do so.

    I like to mess with you because you go off on tangents about shit out of nowhere about PC culture (I live in the middle of the country...Im not super progressive and I think SJWs are a joke). Have a Werthers Original and calm down, Gran Torino.

    You'd be lucky to find a book made prior to 1960 at Goodwill. My wife already has a few early 1800s books. They're in French, but that's ok.
