This was a good introduction to some of the non-canonical books of the Bible.

Lcsmcat I love the teenage Jesus stories in the apocrypha! 2w
Slajaunie The Bible was composed at the end of the forth century. How can this person know this? 2w
quirkyreader @Slajaunie That is a good question to pose. The study of these books can take years. And then of course there is the usual archeological testing of the manuscripts and so forth. 2w
Slajaunie Interesting. 2w

To anyone who is interested or Quaker curious, this is a good introduction to it. This is one of the oldest sects of Christianity in North America.

Yea, I finished another one. Hopefully I will get the backlist finished this year. This was another good chapter in the Dalgliesh series.

rretzler I love this series. I keep hoping that James left notes or a half-written Dalgleish book that will be published posthumously. 2mo
quirkyreader @rretzler You never know since there have been two posthumous volumes of stories already. 2mo
rretzler @quirkyreader I think many of those stories had already been published though, and are just being repackaged. There was a new early Dalgleish story in the one though. 2mo

The power went out over the weekend and I was nursing a broken tooth. To take my mind off of everything I got caught up on some reading.

First off this book was very trippy and beautifully done.

Snoopy is keeping me company this afternoon. One of my molars cracked at work today. So now I‘m not very happy. I just had this tooth fixed. So now I have to burn through more sick time and take pain pills that I am not looking forward to taking. But mostly my dental anxiety has kicked into overdrive because I know I have to go back and get it fixed.

Here is a “small” selection of my Bibles. I am at my parents farm over the summer so I am practicing “Voluntary Simplicity” as much as I can. When I have actual shelves again I can take another photo.

I also brought a small amount of fiction with me so that I can finish my MountTBR in small chunks.

I have fallen dreadfully behind in all of my challenges. But we all know life and work has a way of changing up things.

DebReads4fun Do you have a favorite Bible? 3mo
quirkyreader @DebReads4fun I don‘t have a favourite translation. I am constantly flipping back and forth during my reading and studies. 3mo
