Flashback Friday # think 3 + 10 = (you might think it's unlucky so I won't post it) ~ My Early Book Reading
This morning Linda has written of many of her childhood books you might identify with.
a little teacher joke from my friend, bornagn901 (I never know whether that will be James or Gwen--the address belongs to James but they both use it when it comes pass-around-joke time):
Did you like to read when you were a child? What were your favorite genres, books or series? Did you read books because of the author or because of the title/plot?
The two-room high school for grades 7-10 similarly had bookcases for the library. I don't remember reading any from those.
What were your favorites and least favorites among the classics (the ones high school English teachers assign!)?

Number 1 3:
William Barclay Commentaries (New Testament); please note my monkey multiplication table toy and Dick Tracy camera from my childhood
Some of the books given to me by my friend, Sam S, before he moved to a retirement home. Sam died about a year ago from Parkinson's disease.
My Black's Law Dictionary from my law school days
My NIV Study Bible appears to be needing a face lift and other books on the shelf in our living room. Someplace here I have my early childhood Bible with pictures but I think it did want to pose for a picture either this morning. The Statue of Liberty on the right is my XX birthday present. We went to NYC that year, 2003, to watch Karen run the NYC Marathon. We got to see her five times by riding the subway to places where she would run past.

Cleaner cook stoves, please ladies
I may be doing more than my share of work. I think I will start a pie chart.

The sermon today was a shoe filler.
Right, there was no toe room left. That's why I'm carrying mine.
I couldn't get that carried away.
