Books

“No more books,” he said earlier in the week.

“No more books without some going out the door.” He had already culled two shelves of books in his office earlier in the week.

He sees books piled in nearly every room of the house. The stack on the kitchen table is 16 inches high. The stack on the dining room floor is more than two feet from top to bottom.

Books are everywhere.

And then he goes to Barnes & Noble to see his niece for a few minutes.

And spies the $2 table.

“Just one,” he thinks.

But just one is not in his DNA.

And thus he arrives home with six new books, a bargain at less than $18 including tax!
