That's a lot of John Donnelly's Gold

To adjust the quote from Thoreau, I have now a library of nearly six thousand volumes, over seventy of which I wrote myself.

Wish me luck.

  1. Unfortunately, this is not the same as saying, “I couldn’t put it down!”

    After the resume, did you clean your house top to bottom?

    Quick anecdote: sometime in the mid 90s I visited the main library of The Ohio State University (they get prickly if you don’t include the “The”), which had at the time very labyrinthine stacks. Seriously — you could get lost in them. There were a few signs around the darker recesses marked “No Masturbating”.

    I assume you’ve picked it up again since you’re past the first chapter now.
