HOW BIG IS YOUR LIBRARY ?


"Don't underestimate the seductive power of a decent vocabulary."

Books on the bookshelves and stacked on the floor
Books kept in baskets and propped by the door
Books in neat piles and in disarray
Books tucked in closets and books on display
Books filling crannies and books packed in nooks
Books massed in windows and mounded in crooks
Libraries beckon and bookstoors invite
But-book-filled rooms welcome us back home at night.
