The book of this and that
Personalised Books & GiftsI own far more books than I could possibly read over the course of my remaining life, yet every month I add a few dozen more to my shelves. For years I felt guilty about this situation, until I read an article by Jessica Stillman on the website of the magazine Inc. He has no desire to keep growing intellectually. The man with an ever-expanding library understands the importance of remaining curious, open to new ideas and voices. You will accumulate more knowledge and more books as you grow older, and the growing number of unread books on the shelves will look at you menacingly. Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books.

The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement , which adherents believe contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately BC to AD According to Smith's account and the book's narrative, the Book of Mormon was originally written in otherwise unknown characters referred to as " reformed Egyptian "  engraved on golden plates. Smith said that the last prophet to contribute to the book, a man named Moroni , buried it in the Hill Cumorah in present-day Manchester, New York before his death, and then returned to Earth in as an angel ,  revealing the location of the plates to Smith, and instructing him to translate the plates into English for use in the restoration of Christ's true church in the latter days. Critics claim that it was authored by Smith, drawing on material and ideas from contemporary 19th-century works rather than translating an ancient record. The Book of Mormon has a number of original and distinctive doctrinal discussions on subjects such as the fall of Adam and Eve ,  the nature of the Christian atonement ,  eschatology , redemption from physical and spiritual death,  and the organization of the latter-day church. The pivotal event of the book is an appearance of Jesus Christ in the Americas shortly after his resurrection.
