Here is an article on the pleasures of owning physical (not digital) books. Ah, the truth to the pleasures inherent in gazing at bookshelves of read and yet-to-be read treasures. I’m thinking about my desert island picks, my ideal bookshelf as described in the article. I’ll post it later in the week. In the meantime, which two books would have to be on your ideal bookshelf list? My top two? Possession by A.S. Byatt. And a reference book of some kind. I’ll pick a specific one out for my ideal shelf list later in the week. I’m defining my ideal bookshelf as the set of books I’d like to have with me in the Hatch if I had to push a button every 108 minutes to save the world.
