Too many Bibles

Not counting my personal ones, I have fourteen Bibles (actually most of them are just half the Bible) that belonged to one, now gone, family member or another. I have at least one for three of my grandparents, three that were my mom’s and four that were my fathers if you count the Bible that the funeral home gave us. I also have my mom’s brother’s New Testament that I will send to my cousin. My favorite is my Grandpa Green’s Mason Bible.

I read that Bibles can be thrown away with no ceremony, but I am uncomfortable doing so. I will probably put them in a box in the kneewall again, providing nourishment for the silverfish.

Or, they could be a Christmas decoration next year.

  1. That is an impressive number of bibles. I can’t imagine throwing any books away. I am also squirming at the idea of letting the silverfish feast on them, but that’s mainly because silverfish make me feel slightly squeamish.

  2. I do love the line, “I will probably put them in a box in the kneewall again, providing nourishment for the silverfish.” And great photo!
