:) Interesting
Jim -

I never did get back to you on that story, did I? Wow...what a great story. I would love to believe that it is true. It may not be entirely true, however, I am sure there is some semblance of truth in the story. It may not have been a cloth in a church, but I'm sure somewhere in those dark years after World War II, a similar story really occurred :)
I thought I would be the only one adding Francis Gay's Friendship Book, glad I am not alone!
You are welcome! Hope you like them!
Jim - I absolutely love the books you chose! I am so interested in reading the Hitler Cross book. It's funny, Hitler and the church is not something I have found a lot of media about. I had to call my mother right away to tell her I was chosen a book written by a pastor! You also need to know that I have already poured through The Righteous several times...trying to satisfy my urge to drop what I'm reading now and devour it! I admit, I was curious to see if Bonhoeffer was in there, but he is more well-known. Very thoughtful and interesting choices.

Do you know what I love about SantaThing? No one buys me books for Christmas despite my very well-known love for them. This is with exception of my son who does if he can find it in a bargain bin - he is only 13. He got me a WWII fiction book this year. Hardcover, too! With SantaThing, I can be sure another book lover will thoughtfully select books for me at Christmas. Sounds selfish, I know, but what can I say? I also get exposed to books I would not normally have considered or found. Thank you again so much for the selections.

I have a deep interest in the Third Reich due to familial history. I have been on a mission for the last 10 or so years trying to understand why people did the things they did. You know what? I'm not any closer to knowing and all those that were involved that I could ask are all dead. It all started when my mother came to visit when my son was 2 years old in preschool. One of his teachers was Jewish and had the kids draw a paper driedle to color. Not thinking anything, I hung it on the wall in the kitchen proudly with his other works of art. Mother shows up, looks at it and says, "You better take that down before Aunt Ginger sees it." All I could think of was "Wow, really, are you kidding? I didn't know it was still 1943." Aunt Ginger was the last one to go and that was all she talked about every time I saw her. It's sad, really. I almost feel sorry for them as I do not think God was easy on them when they left this earth. All I can say is my job in all this is to teach my children not to be tolerant of such things.

Oh, hey, how did you like the book If You Want to Walk on Water , You've Got to Get out of the Boat? I just saw it in your recently added. I have been keeping my eye on that one.

Sorry to ramble, and thanks again for the great selections!

I really like your library. It is wonderful and loaded with cool books.
I arrange my books by Dewey, in part because I had to memorize the system in library school lo these many years ago. For the most part, I know what Dewey number a book should be in and just go straight there. For those I don't know or am not sure about, a LibraryThing search among my own books will turn up the Dewey number I assigned to it.

The books themselves have their call numbers written on a small, inverted Post-It that is stuck to the top of the front flyleaf, such that the part with the number on it sticks up from the top adjacent to the spine. This makes it easy to scan the shelf for the right number and to replace the book in the right place afterwards.
Whaddya know, I'm deaf too (since early infancy). Thanks for adding me as an "Interesting Library".
you might enjoy the book "Seeing Voices" by Oliver Sacks
If you like Jewish books, check out my catalogue. I have many Jewish and Messianic books.
Paul Harvey Aurandt (born September 4, 1918), better known as Paul Harvey, is the listed author of "The Rest of the Story" books. I am hoping all the owners of his books will change the author box to say Paul Aurandt so they will untangle the several authors on the Paul Harvey page.

I had to come over to take a look at your online library after seeing that you were the only other member with the 'favourite family foods' mennonite cookbook. I must say, we share a rather eclectic mix of books!
