You know when you get a dusty box of books donated, and you're afraid to put your hand inside and pull anything out? What's the most unique thing anyone has ever donated to your church library?


I wrote a blog post about mine. It was a very inappropriate romance book, but when I started looking at it, it was clear that it had been customized with the couple's names in it. And it had been purchased by his mom as a wedding gift for them. Eeek! 


Here's the rest of the story, if you'd like to read it, but I'd like to hear from y'all, too.

  • A video of "Singing in the Rain." I have no idea why they thought a church library would want that!

  • Haha! I received the Twilight series.  Yikes.
