I like rare books and I cannot lie
All you other patrons can’t deny
When a girl walks in with an Elzevir Press and a provenance request you get

I like em big
And bound
In vellum or leather brown

“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

Got off work early because it was slow, and was able to actually GO INTO THE LIBRARY AND NOT RUSH. Wonderful.

I’d buy a book that was cut in a circle if it meant that I could turn it 360° to read it. Publishers, get on this please.
