Cell Block e

This is the corner i live in. nothing is ever really organized, but under the chaos, if you look, you will see some order. Books come and go, but the chaos never ends.

we picked up a great book the other day called 'only in books' by j. kevin graffagnino. it is an amazing anthology of quotes about books by the greatest minds throughout time. here's a couple to wet your whistle...

"This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum"
-Elbert Hubbard

"It is those books which a man possesses but does not read which constitute the most suspicious evidence against him"
-Victor Hugo

"There are not in the world at any time more than a dozen persons who read and understand Plato"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's good to know that my own desk/work area isn't as abnormal as I thought. I just wish I'd keep the top of the scanner clear...

That's a work space I can relate to. I'm pleased to discover a blog by another Wisconsin bookseller. We've probably been at the same library sales. We're the ones who carry toddlers and books rather than cell phones. :) --Anita
