The other night a guy at Rich O's recommended an author (Ayn Rand) to me that I'd never read before. As I'm always looking for new people to read I made the trip to Barnes and Noble on Saturday to check her out.
Nothing by her on the shelves. I guess she's been inactive lately.
Of course that didn't stop me from spending $250 on books while I was there.
I'm with books the way some women are with shoes and some guys are with tools. I simply cannot leave a bookstore empty-handed.
These are just the books in the basement. I've got two more of these shelves, full of technical books, in my office, and another 50 or so books scattered about the house.
I will say that I've read nearly all of the fiction books. I usually go through a book a week. Right now my unread book stack has about a dozen books on it - including the six I bought on Saturday.
