I have in the neighborhood of 10,000 books (and growing). I will admit that I find it nearly impossible to throw away a book. I have books I wish I did not have. I have books that I wish I had read (and may still). I have books I wish I had not read (regret without contrition). I have books that I use to look up things but will never read. I have books that think I should read (but it is growing less likely each year that I will). I have books I have read once and that was enough. And I have books I re-read. Anyway, the visual fits me better than I care to admit.
