Cozy reading spot

Nice!

I couldn’t live a week without a private library - indeed, I’d part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I’d let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.

I’m a book lover. I’ve probably already fucked a whole library.

I got to chill out in heaven for a bit. My granddad’s library.

This is a personal book collection? Holy shit, that’s awesome.

If your friend wishes to read your ‘Plutarch’s Lives,’ ‘Shakespeare,’ or ‘The Federalist Papers,’ tell him gently but firmly, to buy a copy. You will lend him your car or your coat - but your books are as much a part of you as your head or your heart.
Mortimer J. Adler
I’ve never understood the desire for books with matched bindings. You don’t go through life looking for sets of matched people, and books are just as individual.

I have that same wonderful problem.

Real life is physical. Give me books instead. Give me the invisibility of the contents of books, the thoughts, the ideas, the images. Let me become part of a book… . an intertextual being: a book cyborg, or, considering that books aren’t cybernetic, perhaps a bibliorg.
