Where Have All the Real Books Gone?
You know me: old-world, old-school. Low-tech. That’s why I like books— I read them, I write them, I collect them. Real books, sewn bindings, dust and all, not electronic books. I receive them as gifts, people bring me unusual copies and first editions and those written in several languages.
But it can be dangerous to a house’s health and well-being. I am in an overflow situation with bookshelf after bookshelf jammed full, and stacks of books here, there and everywhere. Three more came to me today and they sound really fascinating.
Then it dawned on me: where have all of the books in the world gone? Why, to my house, of course! It’s as though everything has shifted and they all came sliding my way.
