It’s a parliament of owls, a flock of sheep, a pack of wolves, and an unkindness of ravens, but what is the collective noun for books? ‘Library’ I suppose, but it isn’t particularly special, so I’m going to go with ‘blessing’ instead. That’s certainly what I received today.
I trundled off to Durham this morning with a bag full of cake and returned this evening with a bag full of books – 15 in total. Some of them are going to be used as part of the reading that makes up the staff study programme this year, and some of them are the latest offering from IVP, who so kindly contribute towards UCCF ministry by feeding our minds and hearts with lovely books.
Such a gift, and I’m excited to get going with this pile.
In summary: book love.
