Since my old tan Bible that my parents gave me when I was 15 or 16 is now literally falling apart, I ordered myself a new leather Bible.
It is chocolate brown, slimline (only about an inch thick), and it has LARGE PRINT!
Because I am nearly 45, I need those big letters now.
I am overwhelmedly excited about my new Bible. I spent time reading some of my favorite passages today... just allowing myself to skip from favorite to favorite, which is sort of cheating, but it was such fun!
This Bible is so nice and sort of crisp, especially the gilt edges of the pages. Part of me can't wait until it is soft and broken in, and part of me wants it to stay new and fresh.
I plan to take good care of it, but I also plan to read it a lot.
