Jon Carroll in the San Francisco Chronicle, on getting rid of books:
“I made a discovery about the immutable nature of books. You can get rid of all the books you want, but you will still have the same number of books in your house. This would seem to be a mathematical impossibility, but experience suggests it’s how the world really works.”
You know, looking around, he may be wrong. It seems that every time I get rid of books, I end up with more. Does that ever happen to you?
