It's on the bag
A reflection of existence

Of making many books there is no end

Books, books again, and books once more!
These are our theme, which some miscall
Mere madness, setting little store
By copies either short or tall.
But you, O slaves of Shelf and Stall!
We rather write for you that hold
Patched folios dear, and prize “the small,
Rare volume, black with tarnish'd gold.”

~ by British poet Austin Dobson (1840- 1921)

writing an essay

I really love to read. I also want to write a poem or essay about books too; describe how they are useful to me and how I'm thankful that such thing exist on earth.

I am a book lover myself - to the point of converting half of my closet to books. I have Hemingway and all his contemporaries. Thought of converting to Kindle but then, it can't seem to replace the emotions that I encounter upon flipping book pages.
