No, this is not about fishing. My thanks today is completely related to books.
Hi, my name is Tina and I’m a book a holic. For the last 5yrs I have arranged my work schedule around this sale, which happens 4 times a year. Today I bought 13 hardbacks and 9 paperbacks and spent $15.75. My favorite find was a 2vol. Tyndale Word Study NT and Concordance. I have wanted a set of these for-ehhhh-ver. When I spotted them on the bottom shelf, in the back corner of the last room, I let out a squeal of delight. My daughter was on the other side of the room and she said she heard me.
When I was a pastor, I was very intentional about growing my library. When I transitioned from the senior pastorate to chaplaincy I sold off a big chunk because we needed the money. When I left ministry and counseling I sold a large part of my library and then again a few years later I weeded through my collection again. I’ve made a habbit in recent years to either donate books back to the library or to my church library. It’s a good thing to do and makes room for new additions. 🙂
So this little bookworm is thankful for books today. And happy too.
One thought on “Day 17: Wormy Thanks”
It’s so satisfying to get a great bookworm deal, isn’t it? 🙂 I collect leather-bound 19th Century classics, and I once found one in a shop where the proprietor was out, and the kid working there took a look at the copy in my hands and shrugged and guessed the price at $5!! I almost ran away, I felt so much like I was stealing!! I’m sure I levitated just a little al the way to my car…You can’t put a price on the stories that come with the finds, can you? 🙂
