(18,998 posts)But I picked Old Stories because there is something rich and warm about a pile of old books.

(10,525 posts)but I'm sure the photographers appreciate that you remember them fondly. If October's contest doesn't stir your teacup, don't despair. We'll be back with something different next month.

(28,840 posts)though I would have probably voted for 50 Shades of Grey if it had another title. That photo had nothing to do with the book, so the "story" was a askew. Maybe if it were titled 50 Shades of Grey Tabby.
Great shots all around, though! Nice job, everyone!

I could have voted for several of these as a top choice winner, but as usual I could only choose one.
