The two most widely published books in the world

One, the Bible of course, Two, Chairman Mao's Little Red Book.

From the sublime to the ridiculous in one short step, I say this who has read both much of the Bible, and The Little Red Book.

I remember quite a bit from the Bible, and nothing at all from Chairman Mao's little Red pocket stuffer.

Thursday night (09 April) after sunset is the time for the annual memorial of Christ's death, as commanded at Luke 22 and 1 Cor 11.

You're all invited to your nearest Kingdom Hall for a short talk on the subject, followed by a memorial of the original covenant-making. Takes about an hour, and is very informative. No collections ever. Bring a Bible if you have one.

Books that would always sell
by Angeline Booher / April 8, 2009 / 2:24 PM UTC

My husband was a book seller.

He said there were three topics that would ensure sales of the book. Those three were Lincoln, doctors, and dogs.

He suggested writing a best seller book entitled, 'Lincoln's Doctor's Dog". Happy
