On library books

Sometimes I wonder why I buy so many books.  I have just compiled a reading list for one of the three parts of my big exam in the spring, and I’m now trying to figure out how many/which books I’ll buy and which I’ll get from the library.  Here’s one reason why I do buy books: when I check the library catalog, some or all of the copies say, “Charged: Due–Indefinite.”  “Indefinite” is enough to send me running to find used copies online . . .

I am, however, absolutely thrilled to have a list drawn up.  I’m also making headway in another section of the exam, as I settle in with two extremely fat Virginia Woolf biographies.  One of them was written in a courtly Cambridge style that I could just read all day!
