About meI picked up the habit of reading as a child and never gave it up, fortunately or not. I make time to read every day, but of course, not all the books I have feasted on are in my library.
About my libraryLike everyone I have a pile of unreads. (you haven't eaten all the food in your kitchen either.) but except for reference works and books clearly tagged as "unread" I have read everything listed. Some books only once and others multiple times.
