Happy Leap Day 2016! On our last Leap Day, four years ago today, I posted on Laura Lou Brookman’s Leap Year Bride.
For this year, all I had to do was find another Leap Year themed romance novel. Within my collecting scope, I know about two definite titles that would have been PERFECT for this post. I knew about them back around 2012 too and figured I had four whole years to track these titles down, no problem. As of February 29, 2016, I haven’t been able to find a collectible copy of either title. Honestly, I knew I had a small Leap Day problem by the end of 2015.
It’s okay, these things happen. Part of the fun/charm/craziness of collecting rare books is that it doesn’t always work out as I had hoped. Instead, I’m posting two Leap Year postcards, the left undated and the right from 1908. Enjoy!
Better luck next time, Leap Day 2020.
