My Library

As I have mentioned before, I like to hoard books. I enjoy the process of cataloguing: sorting titles in alphabetical order, going insane with thousands of genres and sub-genres and ending up with just two (fiction and nonfiction), shelving and unshelving books, feeling bad about dog ears and yellowy spots, and experiencing the pain of losing books by friends who don’t return them.
