- I’m jealous of Alberto Manguel’s 30,000 volume library.
I have dozens of very bad books that I donâ€™t throw away in case I ever need an example of a book I think is bad. The only book I ever banished from my library was Bret Easton Ellisâ€™s â€œAmerican Psycho,â€ which I felt infected the shelves with its prurient descriptions of deliberately inflicted pain. I put it in the garbage; I didnâ€™t give it to anyone because I wouldnâ€™t give away a book I wasnâ€™t fond of.
- Look at this hilarious makeover of the bible. It’s girly! (Thanks VQR for the link!)
- Why are British book jackets often so much better than the North American? They’ve created a centenary set of the entire James Bond collection. I’m not sure if they’re available here in the states. We just get these pulp covers for now.
30,000! I’m adding my name to the “green with envy” list! Very cool! Thanks for sharing that story!
Have a great weekend!
