I did it. What did I do you ask? Not only did I go to the library, but I borrowed four books. That's right, I borrowed books from a library. How novel of me. You see, I'm a buyer. I like being able to dog ear pages, write in the margins, loan them to friends and generally like seeing them sitting on my bookshelves for eternity as dust forms around their yellowing spine. Today I broke from my comfort zone (what that is, I don't really know) by renewing my library card and then took out the much blogged about A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel, Marginalia by H.J. Jackson, The Girl in the Glass by Jeffrey Ford and Too Loud a Solitude by Bohumil Hrabal.
Thanks to Dorothy at Of Books and Bicycles for the for the Manguel book. I already know I'll dig it.
