When "Work" is Fun!

Whew! What a project!

I spent the entire day yesterday and half of day checking in the books Harold gave me into a computer book library/inventory program and then integrating them into my current collection of books. That necessitated rearranging my shelves, reorganizing the shelves and sections, and then making some room in my “office.”

Mind you I am not complaining! I loved every minute of handling those “new” books and finding homes for each of them. I was gifted with several MacArthur Commentaries,  a D. Edmond Heibert commentary, the entire set of Sheldon’s History of the Church, and a number of books on “Evangelicalism, regeneration,  and a number of other assorted topics, a book on William Carey, and also the diary of David Brainerd to mention a few.

No questions remain now about my summer reading list. I still have to read the five (5) volume set of The Works of Stephen Charnock. Now I have about twenty (20) new books to read. In addition to Charnock I think I will start with The Rise of Evangelicalism: The Age of Edwards, Whitefield, and the Wesleys by Mark A. Knoll

Thank you again Harold Turpin!


welcome to my world of poetry said...

I am pleased you enjoyed yourself though it involved much work.

Have a great week-end Gregg.

Cataloging and organizing books is my idea of fun! What inventory program do you use, Gregg?
