Library Card

I like to own books. I want to slowly
accumulate a well-sized personal
library. I go to stores, I go to
sales, and I borrow indefinitely;
it doesn’t matter one bit to me where
a book comes from, so long as I can add
it to my ever-growing collection.
However, there is always something in
having a library card, in being
able to browse a taste and tempt my shelf.
I get no better recommendation
than from myself. How else can I learn who
to turn to when I am desperately
in literary need? Plus, it’s so cheap.
