Five of the best books I ever got.
1) Thompson KJV Bible
Bible is best selling book in human history. Still researching whether Talmudic Jews hijacked it, but it’s looking doubtful.
2) Webster’s hardback dictionary
Webster was a giant of words.
3) Bartlett’s book of quotations
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
4) Roget’s Thesaurus
To educate oneself on word relationships is priceless.
5) Mathew Henry’s Commentary on the Bible
A greater commentary seemingly does not exist than this 400 year old treasure.
