UMMMmmmmmmm.
You are a person who is suspicious, who does not want to be mislead.
You like to be in solid ground, very solid. You go to extremes to search for the fundaments so that your solid ground is really solid.

You like prayer, you like inner life, you are an "immanent" viewpoint of God. And I do not know what the little red Book is doing there, is it the Red Book of Mao-Tse-Tung?

You live in Detroit. You are a person who loves the aesthetic part of life, the beauty of a sunset, the flowers and the dreams. Yet, over it or under it, you have got a warrior side.

Wow!! You Have my bookcase! I've never met anyone else who had Book Trails! Is it the 1920s set? Do you have any of the My Bookhouse series? I've four full sets, and a partial set (not counting my Mom's from the 1930s).

If you do not have a Phd in Philosophy you have got a deep enthusiasm for “deep” philosophy and you are not content to know the theory, you want to read the originals and see if what they say about it is really what is said.
You have a self-irony that is great. You are a person i would spend a whole afternoon talking with (one beer at the side, I say just one!)

Okay--This is one shelf out of 6, in one large bookcase out of 11 large bookcases (no, I can no longer see the sun through the blocked windows;)):

I only have Through the Wildwood. It was my aunt's book when she was a child, and it got passed on to my mom and then to me. I still love to read those stories, especially The Day the Dolls Came Alive. :) The one volume I have is an original copy from the 20's. I would love to have the other volumes one day!

I'm assuming Bob is referring to the Little red book in the Little Books series. It's an American thing. It started in the Diocese of Saginaw, Michigan and it's gotten pretty widespread. It's basically a booklet of short 5-minute meditations for a particular liturgical season.

I guess you weren't completely wrong. I feel like I alternate between the highly suspicious and the highly gullible. :p
