Friday Love

27 Feb

I have been rather quiet the past few weeks because 1) I have a new job and still have not recovered sleep and energy-wise and 2) I have also been sick.  So I especially need these bits of happiness this week.

I am so tired after my first week at a new job that nearly all of my love is saved for my bed and Saturday morning’s sleeping in.  Still, these things made me smile this week:

This book, a housewarming gift from a dear friend I’ve not yet met

The writer Umberto Eco belongs to that small class of scholars who are encyclopedic, insightful, and nondull.  He is the owner of a large personal library (containing thirty thousand books), and separates visitors into two categories: those who react with “Wow! Signore professore dottore Eco, what a library you have!  How many of these books have you read?” and the others – a very small minority – who get the point that a private library is not an ego-boosting appendage but a research tool.  Read books are far less valuable than unread ones.  The library should contain as much of what you do not know as your financial means, mortgage rates, and the currently tight real-estate market allow you to put there.  You will accumulate more knowledge and more books as you grow older, and the growing number of unread books on the shelves will look at you menacingly.  Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books.  Let us call this collection of unread books an antilibrary…”

This quote from a book my brother recently finished, which makes me feel much better about all the books on my shelves I have not yet read.

Happy Friday!
