Images of America - Middleburg - by Kate Brenner and Genie Ford

Gregg and I headed to Middleburg on Sunday.  We love this town, it is a great place to walk around.

When we stopped by Common Grounds, a favorite place of ours, we met a couple of ladies who were signing copies of their book, "Images of America - Middleburg."  It is a lovely book and takes you through two-and-a-quarter centuries of the town.  We have always loved it here at any time of the year and we feel fortunate that our visit coincided with their book-signing.  Now we can read more about its history.  There is also a wonderful selection of photos throughout, many that are vintage, and  tells about some of the famous people who have lived here, from presidents to movie stars and others.  

They very kindly autographed my book....

and allowed me not only to take their picture, but gave me their permission to post about them on my blog.  Thank you Ladies, we enjoyed meeting you and will enjoy finding out more about this lovely town in Loudon County.  

We also met Jill who owns Second Chapter Books in Middleburg, at 8 E. Federal Street, and knowing our love of books you can bet that on our next visit we will be heading to see her.  She can be found on Facebook here.  Jill is a lovely lady we had a chance to talk at some length.  She is selling Kate and Genie's book in her shop, so if you find yourself heading to Middleburg, pop in.  I will probably be buying more copies to give as gifts to my book-loving friends....

and they made our Sunday drive even more fun and interesting for which we thank all of them.
