The UPS man has just delivered my newly purchased, pocket-size, Douay-Rheims Bible. Leather cover, gold gilt-edges, lovely on the palm.
The thing is, I will need magnifying glass to read it. Even if my eyes will recover at sundown from painting and staring.
I also have prescription glasses tucked away somewhere which I've tried not to wear since the day I got them. If I want to keep this Bible, I'll have to change my mind about the glasses.
The Book really is lovely.
