Topic: So much to read....

I was delving into some new books (and getting my ass back to reading, as I've been delinquent a bit the last year), and was thinking about how people will plead or whatever with an author for more once they've exhausted the author's output, or at least certain types of books the author's written. I used to sympathise with this. But now, I just think it's cos people are being lazy. Plenty guilty, myself, in the past.

There's just so much to read. Don't like it in the first few pages, get a new one. The library does carry a lot of books, especially in big cities/urban sprawls. (Incidentally, I do have a collection of books I've read and think are seminal, but just am not in the market to add them, nor the space to keep them.)

With 20,000 books or so, I'm running out of space as well. Some of my favorite people insulate their homes and apartments with wall-to-wall bookcases. Montag the Fireman would point out that these could be fire hazards!
