rubber bible

My new free ESV Trugrip Bible arrived this morning. (from the ESV blog Bible giveaway)

It's very lovely - the cover is bright orange and made of a really tactile rubber with wavy groove patterns on it so it feels really nice to hold. It smells quite strongly of wet paint but I'm hoping that'll wear off? Mmmmm.... small but perfectly formed.

Haven't had a chance to read any of it yet so I'll just leave you with that external description!

Never judge a book by its cover? Shame - I like this cover a lot!

Oh... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Dave who writes a great blog and was the person who told me about the ESV Bible Giveaway.

  1. But in this case judging by the cover wouldn't disappoint considering the books is infinately more amazing!

    Does it bounce?

  6. Sorry, a bit off topic but I just wanted to say hi, how you doing etc. Was nice to play in a band with your good husband and his orange trousers over the weekend. Tell him I really enjoyed plaing alongside him.

    Of course, you are also a reputed genius and I was wondering how I put one of those fancy Make Povety History bands accross the corner of my blog?
    Ta, awfully.

    God bless, joe
