997 Books on the Shelves

Library Thing tells me I have 997 books. Any ideas as to how I should celebrate 1,000?

probably by admitting I am a book-aholic.

"Lord of the Rings" equals three books. Good to have a little fiction every once and awhile...

If anonymous #1 is "Dutch," I received those 3 yesterday and was blown away by your generousity. Thank you for being an instrument of God's kindness to me. Please shoot me an e-mail because I seem to have lost yours. The thank you note is in the mail.
So, those three are included in the 997.

LB, good suggestion. However, the only fiction book I have ever read is Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress." I don't think I would even know how to read a book of fiction. Do you underline and write in fiction books?

I want to meet these friends that keep sending you books. Let them know you have church members that love books, too!!!

Only one work of fiction??!!??!! LotR is excellent. I have read it about five times. I usually do not underline fiction, but I have marked up LotR. It has helped me understand it (dozens and dozens of places, creatures, and events) and sometimes the quotes are so funny I want to go back and laugh at them again!! Highly, highly recommended for numbers 998, 999, and 1000.

1. Precious Rememdies Against Satan's Devices- by Thomas Brooks
2. The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment - by Jeremiah Burroughs
3. Happiness Doesn't Just Happen - Learning to be Content Regardless of Your Circumstances - by Wade Burleson.

Tell me which of these you don't have -- and I will be sure you get them!

Clif Cummings said...

Oh -- if you don't have these - you must reserve the space so that i will have the privilege of completing your 1,000 books!!

justin said...

Clif, I don't have any of these. However, don't feel like you have to get them for me.
I didn't know Wade had a book.

what about jeanna's books? she's got enough christian fiction to keep you busy for awhile!

Clif Cummings said...

Wade's book will be in the mail headed your way tomorrow. The others will be shipped ASAP. Blessings my friend from the hand of a grace full God!

HI! Justin,

What about throwing an open library party? Like having an open house party. We can bring a book for you for the party and see your vast library.

You will George MacDonald's fictions novel. He is C.S. Lewis' favorite author. I got them and you can borrow them.

Eating His Word,

Justin,
I think you should come to my library and see which books I need and give me the ones you have so that you still have time before you get to 1,000. If that won't work, I don't know what to tell you.
