The books on top were published 2006-2009. The ones on the bottom 2010-2011. I hope mauve is not up next.

    Interesting… as our faith is revealed among the gray… as we work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Phi 2:12b).

  2. John says:

    Lol…I suppose I’ll have to arrange my library by color now…

  3. Mandi says:

    I’m hoping for hot pink in 2012.

    looks like there were also more hardcover books in 06-09.

    Just the fact that you even noticed this…ahem…disturbingly geeky (with all good humor).

    No MacArthur’s ‘Slave’?

    You forgot, Recovering the Real Lost Gospel by Darrell Bock (matte black). A worthy addition!

    I wonder how much of the black covers is playing off the Twilight books. I hope none, but…

    Hey! You somehow accidentally left out LOVE WINS! :)

    I already arrange mine by color, purposely putting black next to white and so on so that each book stands out instead of just blending in. If not, I might forget about it and keep passing it up when looking for something quickly when I only have a little time to read.
    If you want a good new color, I think a shiny deep bluish/greenish/turquoise would be the best choice. My copy of Louis Berkhof’s ‘Summary of Christian Doctrine’ is that color, I love it.
