A village woman used to walk around always carrying her Bible.
"Why always the Bible?" her neighbors asked teasingly. "There are so many books you can read."
The woman knelt down, held the Bible above her head and said,
"Yes, of course there are many books I could read.
"But there is only one book which reads me."
