the problems of plenty


Today's Sunday Mid-day column, about the pleasures of libraries, maybe the necessity. What I couldn't expand on in the column but which people can check out from here are two excellent online library ventures - they will send and pick books up!

Paro, I really loved this article. So much of my childhood was spent in scrounging around neighborhood libraries and neighbors' bookshelves. Or the BCL. Now, the corner second-hand book dealers run a library of sorts. It's nice, but of course, you can never tell what you'll find.
