I love books.
For people who know me, that might be an understatement, but its true: I love books.
I came across a couple quotes awhile back that say it well:
- “There never yet have been, nor are there now, too many good books.” – Martin Luther
- “When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.” – Erasmus, an old scholar
- “I cannot live without books.” – Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1815
Ever since I was a little kid, I would save up money to buy another book. Amazon is my addiction of choice. And if you were to ask me how many bookcases full of books I have, I’d be slightly embarrassed to declare it.
