Couple of months ago, just after Christmas, I was browsing the Religion section at one of the local used bookstores. I kind of keep my eye out for some of those embarrassing JW gems. I've found a mint condition green bible there before. I remember a story from the podium back in the 90's about even at the assemblies beware! That wolves come in among us in sheep's clothing. That outsiders know how desirable young sisters are and try to find them for themselves. And a young man was at a convention trying to meet women, but he wasn't a real JW because he had a green bible (which by that time had been replaced by the black ones). So I always wanted to walk into a district convention toting one. Maybe the old pink paperback songbook too.
So anyway, there was one of the new grey bibles. Just seems like yesterday they were all out of bibles, and had a hard time getting them. And after months of speculation, out came the new grey bibles.
It just seems like too soon that these are winding up at used book stores.
I can only wonder why. Did somebody wake up? Or did somebody die alone with no close JW friends to will their books to? And some family member just dumped them off at the used book store? I hope it was somebody waking up.
