I have been over to Mary's house. It was a weird experience to say the least. She has NO books in her house! A dictionary, okay - it's really good old English dictionary on Indian paper. That and a bible. She says that she purged all the books out of her house after her husband died. She said that she handles so many books at the library that she doesn't need to see them around her house. I don't know if she's grieving or crazy. I couldn't live in a house this book-depleted. I need them around. I need to hear them breathe.
