My Books -Ruben Chupp

My Books

I like books.

I like books a lot.

I like lots of books a lot.

I have lots of books.

Maybe I have too many books.

But I don’t think so.

A person can’t have too many books (can you?).

 

My church office has more shelf space for books

than my office at home.

So I have to give away some of my books.

That’s a hard thing.

Even if I haven’t looked at a book in ten years . . .

I might need it tomorrow, probably will.

So I should keep my books because one never knows . . .

 

But I can’t keep all my books, don’t have enough shelf space at home.

So I’m taking some of my books home, but not all my books.

I give some of my books to Amy.

I give some of my books to North Main people.

I give some of my books to Whistle stop, and they sell them to other people.

The rest of my books go on my shelves at home

but I’m running out of shelf space at home.

 

The only books that remain in my office are bible commentaries.

I know I will need those again.

I have four more sermons to preach.

The rest of my shelves are empty.

In my office.

But not at home, where shelves are filling up.

 

Sorting my books, keeping some, not others, has been hard.

Real hard.

Harder than I thought it would be.

Because I like my books.

I like my books a lot.

I like lots of books a lot.

I like to read a lot.

 

And I don’t know which book I might need tomorrow.

Maybe the one I give away.

Probably the one I give away.

Even though I am keeping lots of my books.

It’s complicated to know which books to keep and which books to give away.

Because a person can’t have too many books.

Right?
