I took this random picture because I wanted a new screen saver. Later, I realized it reveals a lot about who I am.
The Chinese teapot represents my childhood in Asia. The book by Virgil reveals my desire to read the ancient classics someday. (Someday never comes.) We Band of Angels shows my interest in WWII. Song of Ascents is one of the many devotional books that clutter my shelves, reminding me that Truth must be the foundation of all I’m trying to learn through books.
The Intelligent Traveler’s Guide to Historic Britain proves I’m a hopeless anglophile. George Eliot’s titles show my definite preference in reading: 19th Century British novels. And The Saint in Miami shows my odd partiality for movies from the 1940’s featuring wise-cracking detectives.
There you have it. Now it’s your turn. What books on your shelf might “describe” you?
