About My Library

"Naturally you're out of
BOOK SPACE.

Everyone is always out of
BOOK SPACE.

If you're not out of
BOOK SPACE,

You're probably not worth knowing."

-Roger of Martin

"One half of it (a library) should consist of books we have read and that have meant something for us, and the other half of books which we intend to read and which we suppose might mean something to us." -Italo Calvino

That seems to be about the right proportions.

Here is my current reading thread:https://www.librarything.com/topic/338512#7712218

About Me
I want to live to be
An outrageous old woman
Who is never accused of being
An old lady.

I want to live to have ten thousand lovers
In one love
One 70-year-long-lasting-love
There are at least
Two of me

I want to get leaner and meaner
Sharp edged
Color of the ground
Till I discorporate
From sheer joy.
-- Julia Kooken

I'm teaching my granddaughter to read, using the Dick and Jane books I had in kindergarten. The first word I remember reading is "Look" which of course, rhymes with "Book," and I've never stopped.
