I'm really into old books. I like the way they smell and the thought that others have loved this writing before me. It makes me feel connected to the past. There is nothing like finding a first edition or early print of one of my favorite authors in a book store. I think they call that "in the wild". I happened into a store last week and almost squealed when I found a couple collections of short stories from Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad that I had been looking for. Merry Xmas to me.
