Worn With Love

It may be falling apart, but her beloved Big Book changed her life in ways she didn’t know was possible

From where I sit on my sofa each morning, I can see my Big Book on the shelf. Its spine is taped over and worn, and colored sticky notes are peeking from the top where I have marked important passages. When I open it some of the pages fall out, though I’ve tried to repair them many times. I could buy a new one, but I like the feeling of holding in my hands the book that helped change my life over 13 years ago.
