Books are scarce in the world. They are illegal in some provinces. They are not easily replaced if not impossible to replace if lost in many if not most circumstances. If you can replace a book or buy one it is usually through the black market at astronomical costs that you cannot afford. Yet you have been able to maintain one of the best collections in the world. If your entire library was about to burn up (think of the firefighters in Fahrenheit 451 invading your home) and you could only have one* book to take with you other than the bible, what would that be and why?

SO I totally missed Drew’s “NOT A MEME” post and was tagged…. now I am getting around to answering it… which is what you do when you are avoiding your finals I suppose.
So this is a hard question, of course,… to ask which book would be the most important to you and why. I have been feeling a bit reformed lately, and was struggling with whether I would choose the Book of Common Worship (BCW) or the Hymnal, our modern day Psalter, because I feel like they are part of the daily practices of my life, the hymnal especially. So, because I have been feeling musical, I shall choose to pick the Presbyterian hymnal… and my quote shall be from the Holy Spirit section of said book:
“Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me. Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me. Melt me, mold me, fill me use me. Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me.”
Hopefully, of course, I will have saved my guitar as well in the event of a fire.
As for who I tag… if you read this and feel compelled to answer, then please do. It will be fun, I promise!
