Monday Musings is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
This week’s Musing asks: If your house was burning down –and you could SAFELY grab a book on your way outside to safety– what book would you make sure you ‘rescued’? Why?
I would have to agree with MizB on this one and say a bible. I am not a Christian by any stretch of the imagination, but my parents have had a big old bible for years that they have used to record births, deaths and marriages. As a family historian, I see the immense worth of that big honking book in genealogical rather than theological terms. There is another book, a little family history book that my aunt put together after my grandmother died. I would probably grab that too. Ok, ok…I know, I’m breaking the rules, but what can I say? None of the other books on my shelf are worth saving; they can all be replaced.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a bl0g). Thanks!
