  • I don't have any rare or really expensive books, which means they can all be replaced with relative ease. Therefore I choose the books that were gifted to me by special people. The ones where you open the cover and see their handwriting.

    From xxxxxxxx

    I especially treasure the ones with a little note included.

    My house did burn down once and I had a few short minutes to grab things. I grabbed my great great grandmothers bible first.
    Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one's self unspotted from this world.
    ~James 1:27

  • 1. Bound volume of Ave Maria magazine wherein there is a letter from Fr. Martin Stephanich on modesty. I was so shocked when I saw it.

    Still thinking on the rest...

    Everyone is safe, and you have chance to grab five. It could be a hypothetical flood or a hurricane, too.
