About me"Wear the old coat and buy the new book." --Austin Phelps

I'm not a bibliophile, I'm a bibliophiliac.
Put me in a bookstore, & my wallet bleeds. - John Stracke, 2001

"Let us read and let us dance - two amusements that will never do any harm to the world." - Voltaire.

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."
--- A.E. Newton

"Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live."
Gustave Flaubert

About my librarySlowly (very slowly!) being entered into LibraryThing. Our library is very chaotic at the present time -- many books are still in boxes.

"The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones." -- Joseph Joubert
