Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be
admonished: of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

2 Timothy 4:13 The cloke that I left at Troas with
Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee,
and the books, but especially the parchments.


Books like friends,
should be few and well-chosen.
- Samuel Johnson -

There are some "so-called" Christian homes today with books on the shelves of the library that have no more business there than a rattlesnake crawling about on the floor, or poison within the child's reach.

Samuel Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language

We recommend this dictionary because it was compiled in England earlier than Webster's, so it is closer to the time of the translation of the King James Bible. For Bible study it is very useful for defining words no longer in common use, as well as common words.
