When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.
What a wonderful quote used by Roger Ebert in this piece on books:
It is a light but interesting read and look at how much influence just owning books can have in our lives.
I thought it was interesting...have fun.

Ironically (?), this quote (by Erasmus by the way) was on bookmarks that Amazon gave away years ago when you bought books from them. A foretaste of their market strategy?

What a fun article. I ended up following a couple of links and was gone for a while exploring. I even read some of the comments he made to posters commenting on his post. The link, by a poster, to the crazy amazon reviewer was hilarious.

***I put this on a book mark +++ years ago and still love it.... Now, I guess, I may have to make a sticker to put somewhere in the zippered Sony cover***
