Stacking Paper

I had a book collection that went about three to four thousand books strong. I feel that collection was a window into my soul, the collection told my story. Those books reflected my mood, my thoughts, the things I wanted and aspired to. Mt collection held so many wonderful discoveries in my reading life, JRR.Tolkin, William S. Borroughs, Walt Witman, Allen Ginsberg, James Joyce, Pat Conroy, Ralph Ellison, histories, biographies. Those were the things that consumed me. What ever caught my eye for a minute, I bought. And I wanted to own the books, have them be a part of my world. I wanted to reach out and read and reread them at my leisure. It was fun while it lasted.
