Sometime people surprises you, and I just read the following quote:
They are a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose. I am the happy victim of books.
Yep, I fully agree. My book shelves are the evidence thereoff. I litterally have stacks of books that I have yet to read. Going on the bus, train, airplanes etc. and you will see me reading a book. Just before sleepy time at night: at least one chapter is read in a book... and I do actually have time for other passions besides books :o)
Parting with books is diffucult, unless it has captured me less than others and I might know somebody who would appreciate that particular book more than me. Kindda pass-it-forward attitude, where a book can wander until it finds an owner really appreciating it and wants to keep it.
