The Bibliophile

I just read a great article in the Wall Street Journal. It's an autobiographical piece by Luc Sante, an author teacher and book collector. You can read the article here. While reading it, I couldn't help but think how much I could relate with Mr. Sante. Bibliophiles are all alike. Our interests may vary, the size of our collections may vary, but the emotion, passion, and yes, obsession is the same in all of us.
I hope everyone enjoys the article!
