I certainly wish I had a library as diverse as my fellow American Refugee and best friend, E. Dubois. Yeah, there are some odd titles in my catalogue. I actually kept some textbooks that were course materials in college, which is helpful for mental snacking. Every once in a while, I open books that exclusively display words.
