What shall I do?

I've got 36 bibles donated to the store.


Let's have some fun.

Any suggestions?

I have no suggestions. I have over 11 in my personal collection. I fought for the family Bible on Hubby's side of the family,....why I don't know. Back then, I guess it meant something to me.

I think we should sell them on eBay?

Let me know what you decide to do. Personally, I'd mark them up 100% He he he!!

Get a good quality shredder, rip off all the covers and burn them at midnight on the 24th, shred the paper pages then use that for kitty litter :o)

I've had a couple weird bible related things in my store. One gal got all upset because there was one for sale....
It just wasn't right to "sell" one.

I wonder how they get out in the world if nobody is suppose to sell them. I also wonder how they can be the #1 selling book of all time if they are not sold.
**stupid people**

I had another woman, buy one and then give it back to me. She wanted me to put it back on the shelf for free,,,,so anyone could take it.

Tracey- They have very little worth, most are used, non are interesting, a few are brand new.

Thump- Not a bad suggestion, and definitely along the lines of what I was thinking.

Joe- *snerk* If we had our own toilet I was going to have one always on the back and tear pages out for that first all-important wipe of the ole #2, finishing of course as per the discussion on a previous open forum.

Hound Doggy- LOL!!!! Presently, any "christian non-fiction" books that I can be bothered to stock either go in "New Age" or in Mythology. (The Aquarian Jesus for example- New Age. The Complete Catholic Catechism- Mythology. *snerk* And both those sections are kept on the same book shelf units as horror, true crime, and sci-fi fantasy. So we're definitely on the same wave length.

Srsly; I use shredded paper for my cat box. It's where all my junk mail goes, on its way to the compost bin. No bibles yet, but several phone books.

Start signing names on the inside front cover, of some dead saints, preferably recently canonized by Paul II. Add a prophesy of doom or hope depending on your own mood at the time.

Use a bird feather and charcoal or red wine or any old shit really, that would get a jesus-freak hot & wet, with the mystery of it all!

Then put them on e-bay, splitting them up between continents. And call your travel agent and book your tickets too Hawaii.

I was think you could burn hem and save on heating costs

Actually, due to the very thin paper which forms the average bibble, they make great last-ditch emergency toilet paper. Just leave one under the bathroom sink way in the back. If you're into the great outdoors and are lucky enough to meet a Gideon (say, on campus), be sure and get one their little green "camping bibles". Much better than leaves when nature calls for a Big Ol' Number Two (or a "leaner" as we call 'em)

You could write an inscription from the 'author'... something along the lines of:

"I made this with love just for you! Follow my rules and worship me or forever burn in hell for eternity - because I love you. -God"

I was thinking about you earlier today and wondering how you were getting along!!!!!!! Would love an email update of how you are doing. Lots of changes for me since we last emailed.

Glad to know you're still about!!!!
