Ok.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Reading the Prologue out loud probably wouldn't take as long.
'Evil isn't the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as evil, maybe more so, and it's a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against stupid. That might actually make a difference.'~Harry Dresden

Oh, you don't want to listen to 8 hours of an Australian accent?

I have the Prologue of Ohrid on Kindle. Good stuff.

It would probably take me about eight years to read it aloud. The song Along Came Jones was inspired by me, though, so it mightn’t take everyone that long.

Accent is not a problem, but ain't nobody got time for that.
