    This was such an interesting article; thanks Tom

    I'm assuming you'll be getting rid of many of your books now…LOL

    Diane: I am still in the vanity phase. I have many books therefore I am.

    Dear Mallory in Phoenix:

    Thank you for your considerate comment on my blog post.

    Did you enjoy the Bone Setter's Daughter? I actually haven't read it myself. The photo is from the New York Times.

    You might be surprised to know that I have a niece in Phoenix and her name is Mallory as well.

    Best wishes for 2010,

    Great article! I just culled about 40 from my shelves and it was painful!

    Tara: Since we hope to move into a house with more space in 2010, I am not getting rid of anything these days. Until I know how many miles of shelves I get in the new place, they are all staying put, huge stacks be damned.
