The bibliophile’s prayer:
Dear Books, I confess my adoration for you! Please deliver me from life’s mundanities into those magical heavens of limitless, ideal fantasies above. Help me maintain my tenuous balance, lest I plummet to reality.
When I first wrote this piece, I misread one of the prompts! I thought Sammi Cox’s prompt word was “bibliophile” – but it is “bibliopole”! Ack!
So, I’ve rewritten this piece accordingly!
The bibliopole’s prayer:
Dear Books, I confess my adoration for you! Please deliver my customers from life’s mundanities into the heavens of limitless, ideal fantasies. May we help them maintain their tenuous balance, lest they plummet earthward.

Well done, David. And an excellent recovery. You were not the only one. 🙂
But remember, without bibliophiles, bibliopoles have no customers. 🙂
