My grandmother passed away at the age of 98 in 2009. She was a deeply religious woman who had several Bibles, some she read daily, others she had for 75+ years and were falling apart.
Believe it or not, even after all these years I am still getting rid of her papers, pictures, letters, and cards many she wrote years before her death. I have been holding onto her many Bibles, some with print too tiny for my eyes to read; a large Coffee Table Bible and a few Children’s Bibles. I no longer have a Coffee Table nor do I have little children so what do I do with them.
I can donate a few to a homeless shelter especially those with all the pages intact, but how about the ones with pages falling out – do I simply throw them it into the recyclable bin?
Hubby bought me a new Bible for Christmas a few years ago, so between that one and my Smartphone app, I definitely don’t need any of them. My hubby and sons are Muslims and have their own Holy Koran so I won’t be passing them down to the next generation.
What do think I should do with these old Bibles?
