Our friend Todd loves books.
Great post, that.
I certainly identify with much of what T.B. writes... and yet the older I get the more I wonder why buying books is such an acceptable form of materialism. For those of us in the West, most of the books we want to read are available in libraries... and yet the urge to possess is strong! I would sneer at someone who owned closets full of shoes, but I have walls lined with books - I might think there is an enormous difference between the two, but I'm not sure a starving person in the developing world would find my arguments convincing... I don't say this to be anti-intellectual, but to be anti-consumerist!
