The Time I Bought The Mysterious Timothy’s Mysterious Book

I bought this book tonight from a street vendor at a festival. It caught my eye because it had no jacket and was completely banged up, but I bought it because it had this inside its cover. This book was so *someone’s* at one point and I liked that about it, a lot. I know nothing whatsoever about the book except that it was published in 1953 (I always check). I’m quite looking forward to reading this mysterious book that once belonged to the mysterious Timothy.13938168_10157580248680144_6087545625490069384_o
