Item of the Week: Vintage Young Adult Adventure Books!


I’ve always loved reading! One of my first memories involving books happened when I was about four years old. My mom was going to read to me. I went to get a few, books, I ended up getting more than a few and hid them under the couch. When she finished reading one, I’d say “I’ve got one more” and pull a new book from where I had hidden them. I love that with books there is always one more!

When I started reading on my own, after graduating from the basic books, I gravitated toward young adult adventure books. Sci-fi, mysteries, books about the frontier, I read them all. I still occasionally pick some up. Several years ago I started collecting some of my favorites, both to re-read and to share with my kids.


Vintage young adult adventures are a lot of fun, even as an adult. They’re a fast, easy, and entertaining. It’s a remarkable thing to see how the world has changed from the first part of the 1900’s to the modern day, from parental supervision (or the lack thereof) to how they viewed the future.

Recently we found a great collection of young adult, adventure books. The copyright dates run from the early 1900’s to the 1940’s. The dust covers are fun examples of pop art during that time period. The dust covers are wonderfully cared for.
