About meI am a bibliophibian. ;)

About my libraryXIV.

Here is the book
the dog-eared page
the ribbon and the note

Here is the plot
the archetype
the saucy little quote

Here is the heft
the smell of ink
the crinkle and the sweep

Here is the world
the character
the company I keep

what my ratings mean:

5---unmissable

Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand.
-Ezra Pound (1885 - 1972)

How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.
-Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862), Walden: Reading, 1854

4---great stuff

When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever step out of it.
-Marie de Sevigne

3---worth reading

I have read your book and much like it.
-Moses Hadas (1900 - 1966)

2---mind candy

Many books require no thought from those who read them, and for a very simple reason; they made no such demand upon those who wrote them.
-Charles Caleb Colton (1780 - 1832), Lacon, 1820

1---waste of time

Reading this book is like waiting for the first shoe to drop.
-Ralph Novak

0---unfinishable

I read part of it all the way through.
-Samuel Goldwyn (1882 - 1974)

The covers of this book are too far apart.
-Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914), The Devil's Dictionary

This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
-Dorothy Parker (1893 - 1967)
