I’m guilty on all 25 counts, and a few more I won’t mention. Thanks for sharing this. Another reason I love the Ukiah blog.

~ You cannot go on a trip without bringing at least 5 books with you

~ You cannot go on a trip and not map independent book stores to visit on your travels.

~ There is not a room in your house that is not used for extra space to store your books

~ You fear losing your reading glasses so in every drawer in every room are extra pairs, just in case

~~ You use any excess cash to buy another book rather than another useless plastic toy for your kid.

~~ You arrive 15 minutes early at library book sales and sharpen your elbows as to keep the digital book resellers from mass grabbing all the good books.

~ You only give books to others for gifts.

~~ When visiting others homes you would rather sneak a look at their bookshelves then in their medicine cabinets.

~~ You begin conversations with others with ‘you know I just read a great book I think you’d really like…..

~ You become depressed when you learn that Mulligan books has closed down.

~` You become further depressed when you realize this is a national phenomenon and access to quality local bookstores is further being denied to all and that it is getting harder and harder to find diversity of product in the bookstores that are left.

~ You fear that books will go the way of the dinosaur due to unproven long term viability of e books and technology while at the same time realizing you might be preserving sacred knowledge so you collect books and books and books of interest to all.

~ You hope AND fear that Amazon books goes away.

~ You realize that even if you’re wrong about books getting scarce, you still will have a killer personal library that generations may enjoy as well as a tangible investment that will likely increase in value over time due to scarcity.

~ You know your last thoughts before passing over is of the books you just haven’t gotten to read yet…
