About my libraryHelp! I have too many books! No, wait... I don't have enough books! I'm a bibliophile, and I'd be a shameless bibliomaniac if funds and space allowed.

The first book I loved was called The Big Red Bus. I remember very little, except that the bus went along a road, fell into a hole, and went CLUNK. Almost twenty-five years later, both of my parents and my older sister can still recite the entire book by heart.

The situation has escalated somewhat since then. There are no more bedtime stories and no more demands for excessive re-reading of the same book, but the love of the written word goes on and on.

I think Sylvia Plath got it right when she said "I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want." That's no reason to stop trying, though.
