Bibliophiles Make Good Friends

The following article was posted in October 2006 but I felt it was worth repeating. Thanks Vicki! Glad you're a Pilgrim Pal!

Fellow blogger Victoria Gaines of Light For the Writer's Soul and Windows To My Soul writes about the value of good reading and literature in her life. Check out her sites...they are excellent!

She listed the following "quirky pointers", as she called them, about herself:

- No sense in wasting time with books that don’t challenge or edify.
- Not everything on the Bestseller’s list is worthy of my time.
- Life is too short to waste on fluff or nonsense.
- Every now and then I read for fun.
- I prefer meaty spiritual classics over contemporary spiritual writers.
- My books reflect my journey, where I’ve been, and where I’m going.
- My favorite books are dog-earred, highlighted, and written in.
- Books evoke a warm feeling in me.
- I don’t understand people who won’t read.
- Friends who give books as gifts are true friends, indeed.
- A person’s bookshelf tells me a lot about that person.
- I could vacation in the public library and not miss home.
- Books are all over my home and car—I read every chance I get.
- I need to know and share truth.
- My Bible is the most important book in my life.

Good stuff! If they are quirky points then I'm really "off-the-wall".

"When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus in Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments." - 2 Timothy 4:13

Good stuff!
I echo your remark, Pilgrim, and someone has to say it for PT, eh?? ;)

Gee, thanks, Pilgrim. As of lately, I'm reading mostly the Bible though. The book of John amazes me all over again.
