I love my books: Here is my Trollope collection, painstakingly accumulated over a period of years from library book sales and secondhand bookstores in the U.S. and Great Britain. Although now are all available for free in ebook form — which, for reasons of portability and convenience, is actually my preferred format — I can’t bear the thought of parting with these lovely and much-loved volumes.

The other day I thought you know what, I’ve been working really hard lately, I deserve more books. I mean I get more books whether or not I’ve been working hard because I have no impulse control but the point is, look at these books I got. How nice.
