- The Holy Land.Edited by Time Life Books.1992.L Boy, I really enjoyed this book. It was not written in any religious way, in fact more so presuming God was a myth, but the photos and the history for one that has read His Holy word was such a reinforcer!

Photo Information: The photo is of our rescue kitty Lainey. She looks frustrated as she is so done with the paparazzi. She is on top of a collection of books I have from Random House called Landmark Books. I always bought used and really liked how they were informative yet a easy to read. We have about twenty-five in this series-and almost all of them were printed in the 1950's.
