Review

"One of the great, abiding works of English literature . . . The acute poetry, balanced sonorities, heavy order, and direct intimacy of its prose have achieved permanence, and many of its phrases and sentences are as famous as lines from Shakespeare or the King James Bible." --James Wood, from the Introduction

Its the Common Prayer Book, and makes life easier when in church. Get the odd look from the elder generation! I line the ability to bookmark though would like to have been able to put in more than one.
