Book in hand. Books are like old friends to me. Like Paulm, I have collected hundreds of books since I was young. If you are looking for it I probably have it... except romance novels... not a fan. I have read them all and most several times. They each have their own personality or memory for me so no matter my mood or the chaos around me, I know just where to go to find a friend. I tried e-books and the experience was definitely not the same. I am also a great patron and believer in public libraries. The closest to me is in a town of 2,000 citizen's and tiny. But, I can get anything from anywhere on any subject through their inter-library loan within a few days. That's just cool.
