Images of America, is a wonderful series of soft cover books showing past pictures of local areas. I am collecting them as my interest are hungered. Covina, my latest acquisition, is actually even better then most of the rest, because it is more Comprehensive. If one has developed and interest in a special geographic area, try to find the Images of America book of that area. I digress, Covina has been my home most of my live, and the pictures remind me of places that no longer exist, like Covina Christian Church where Reverand Hubbard, in 1959. a man who was badly burned in WWII gave me The Revised Standard Bible, I still use today. While IoA did miss publishing a picture of the Reynolds Buick Showroom, where Pete Reynolds let a ten year old boy drive him around the used car lot in a new 1960 Buick Electra 225, they can't get everything, but it does bring back the good times. If one is interested in Covina, it is a great book, but if one's interest is in any other local, by all means see if B&N has got a IoA book on that area.
