Day 17: Autumn props #octoberlibrary17
I haven‘t got around to getting any autumn props but I did get these Publix salt and pepper shakers at a thrift store for $4. My dad recommended The Pilgrim‘s Progress to me but I haven‘t read it yet. Has anyone else read it? Any good?

Peterfox123 That was a set text at university for me. Outside of that I would never go near it. 🤓 2y
HannaPolkadots I read it when I was about 14 and actually enjoyed it (cause that's what you do when none of the boys ask you out) and I didn't find it difficult either. Been meaning to reread it as an adult, but have not gotten to it yet. 2y
alisahar I had a highly religious childhood- probably as religious as you can get- so I'm intimately familiar with the story but I never read the whole thing unabridged. I think it would be unbearable- just a litany of two-dimensional allegorical types. (edited) 2y
Vansa There's a children's version of this written by Enid Blyton that I remember enjoying a lot when I was a kid !! 2y

Ten Little Niggers | Agatha Christie

Not a lot of people know that #AgathaChristie's #AndThenThereWereNone was originally published in the U.K. with the title #TenLittleNiggers. It was also published as #TenLittleIndians. It's amazing to see how things were so easily accepted back then and know this would never make it out to the public these days. #bookstagram #racistmemoribilia #history #blackchef #mammy #mysterybooks #racist #bookcollector

tasha The #SaltandPepper shakers were my grandmothers. I'm not sure where she got them but they are old. A piece of #Americana - a history we should never forget 3y
Lesliereads Wow! Thanx for the history lesson! 3y
DivineDiana It is shocking to see past examples of "acceptable" racism. It is our duty to abolish current ones. 3y
