Today I stopped by our local St. Vincent DePaul to drop off a bag of cook books. I don't go there very often but occasionally I'll browse through the shelves of books. Lately I've been on an Agatha Christie kick so I was excited to come across two-TWO!-right off the bat. I also grabbed another book that looked interesting (I'm trying to go beyond mere entertainment). When I checked out I was delighted to find that the books were all $.10! Woo hoo. Not that they were much anyway, but a discount's a discount! Yup. So, I got them home, brought them to my nightstand and forgot about them til I came across this topic tonight. I went to grab my stack and lo, and behold....these are the books I have:
Curtain-Agatha Christie (hard cover, 1975 edition)
Curtain- Agatha Christie (soft cover, 1976 edition)
I was so excited I didn't even check the titles! Hohohoheeheehee. Mayhap it was just that I'm so thoroughly exhausted. Hmmm? Maybe.
I also have these on the nightstand:
More Than a Carpenter-Josh McDowell
Crusader Hymns and Hymn Stories-The Billy Graham Team
I love the stories behind the hymns we sing at church so I snapped this one up. I'm hoping it will be something I can share with the kids since they have heard a few of these true stories through Adventures in Odyssey and have shown a lot of interest in them.
I'm suffering though. I have these great books at my fingertips and I can't read them. Yet. I have too much to do before my family shows up tomorrow and Thursday, expecting a 5-star Thanksgiving Dinner. I am so thankful those books will still be here when they have had their fill of food and family and head home.
