I'll be bound

My bible is getting a bit tatty so I thought I'd find out how much it would cost to have it rebound. 
The answer is too much. £120 or £150 if I want lettering on it. As I can get a new one for less than £40 I can't really justify spending that much, it's just that it has sentimental value for me.

I became a Christian when we lived in Southampton and when we left the women I'd been meeting with gave me this bible and it's seen through me a lot.
I suppose I'll have to buy a new one and put this one into retirement, storing it safely on a shelf.

In my librarian days I became quite adept at book repairs. Since I was at a church school, I was discovered by some of the local clergy. I have done a few Bibles, missals, and lectionaries.

That one would be a challenge.

Should we ever get the chance to come visiting again, remind me and I will bring my book repair supplies.

Sounds like hard work, anna! And I wouldn't be much good.
