It’s not everyday that a book ship docks at my local harbor – the MV Logos Hope is a Christian ship that has been touring the world with a crew of 400 people from 50 different countries, dedicated to administering social outreach and education programs during each visit.

A look at what the staff bunk beds look like, and a brief history of the Logos Hope.

Naturally, what attracted my attention was the large book fair they have inside featuring about 7,000 titles. Being a Christian ship, fiction titles are somewhat limited, but what they’ve really got going for them are the list of nonfiction titles they have. Their cookbook section is probably the biggest I’ve seen in any bookstore.


For a Christian book ship, this one seriously made me go wut.

My delicious ice cream treat, along with some of my purchased stash (both of which, really, pretty much defines me as a person).
