Here you will find some books I found interesting or just fun. The copyright is long due, since this is very old books. These books have I found by accident or learned about at lectures.
It would be great fun if anyone have an old book something they would like to share! (They would not neccesarry be from the 16’th century, but the author must have been dead for at least 70 years.)
And as always, just click on the pictures to read the book.
If you want a hint on how to use a “flipbook”, you’ll find it here.

Why not change the look of your Lucia bun, se page 27 and 35. Illustrations from Halland, se page 126 and 153.
By the way, when did you play “Throw hookleg”, “Draw rolling pin” or “Take the Christmas bundle” latest? (My translations is very homemade.) Se page 303 and 305.

Very amusing reading about a small farm between Krogsered and Drängsered. Most in this story, I have learned, is real persons and episodes. Pictures from Slätthult, have a look under ”Native district – Slätthult”. The Bondesson-society has published the book in a facsimil print with a nice preface. You can read it on the “Slätthult-page”, mentioned above.
