Long before the internet and used bookstores, there were Brandeis Book sales. A friend took me to my first book sale during our college years at Trinity University. Thousands of used books were stacked on tables sprawled in a shopping mall. At these mobile sales, you could purchase books for a penny on the dollar, and less! But the shopping bag full of books were perfect for a growing library.

Isadore of Seville, the monastic and archbishop of the 5th-6th Century, AD, wrote: “When we pray, we talk to God; when we read, God talks to us. All spiritual growth comes from reading and reflection. By reading we learn what we did not know; by reflection, we retain what we have learned.’
