I love books! I have often judged places we’ve called home by the public libraries. Columbus, OH may still be my favorite. I loved getting my new books for college each semester – paying for them not so much.
A bargain shelf at a bookshelf or even in a discount or grocery store is often a temptation too great for me to resist. If you give me free books – I will love you dearly for a very looong time.
I enjoy reading nonfiction as well as some fiction. I’m really picky about my fiction, though. I’ve admitted to never reading some of the classics and there are others I absolutely can’t stand. You might think less of me if I name those, so I’ll just keep that to myself for now. I might be thrown out of the blogging world if that information is leaked.
My all-time go to book, however, is the BIBLE. Shocking, I know. Why wouldn’t it be? It has everything in it that I could ever need to get me through this life – even if I just want a good thrilling tale at times (Do you know the one about Paul and the shipwreck?!?)
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing those from whom you learned, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:14-17
