New Books!

 

My hubby surprised me with some books from my wishlist!

 

I'm itching to start them right away but I'm going to resist and add them to my TBR jar.

Christmas + Book Sale = The Perfect Storm

After a lot of convincing that buying me books (they buy them for everyone else) would really, truly be my idea of the best gifts ever, my family came to the party in a big way; I got books from everyone.  MT bought me several, wrapped them, and then hid them in my library for me to search out on Christmas morning.  Diabolically fun!

 

Then there was the sale.  One of our local bookshops only sells remainders so it's bargain pricing to start with, but they've lost their lease and haven't found another one yet, so they put everything in the store on massive discount on Boxing Day.

 

The result was the perfect storm of book hauls.  I wasn't going to post this at all because I'm a bit embarrassed about my bounty, but here it is, and please keep in mind it was a really good sale!

 

 

There was a definite atlas theme to my holidays this year, MT also got me a 2000 piece puzzle of the world.  :)

 

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and for those celebrating Hanukkah, I hope you're having a fabulous celebration!

#Bibliotheca Book Haul

2 1/2 years ago I came across a Kickstarter for a Bible version that was without chapter or verse, and had all sorts of other "artsy" things [ie, formatting of the page and text, not pictures and silly junk].

 

Bibliotheca Post from 2014

 

Offical Bibliotheca Website from 2016

 

It exploded. It's goal was $20K and maybe 500 copies. It went over the Million Dollar mark and took about 24 months longer than expected due to the huge increase. It ended up being made from wood free paper, so the pages will never simply rot away. They are actually made from stone. How cool is that!?!?

 

So today, they arrived. I had ordered a full set and so had my brother and father. They have broken up the Bible into 4 volumes:

The Books of Moses & the Former Prophets

The Latter Prophets

The Writings

The New Testament.

 

I also ordered the Apocrypha JUST so I could get the slipcase :-) I read it once back in Bibleschool and remember not being very impressed with it.

 

So a big thanks to #Adam Greene, Kickstarter & General Project Manager and all the crew at #Bibliotheca.

 

I am including several pictures, but I don't know how well they will come out. Phones are a terrible replacement for a camera, but they're so dang convenient!
