This idea that books are exempt from the rules of hoarding, that you’re supposed to be happy that you have walls and walls lined with these things? I don’t actually feel that. I feel that if I had one of those book scanners or if there was a program, if Google had a book buy-back program where I could trade them every paper copy I have for a digital copy, I would do that in a heartbeat with almost every book in this house. I would love that. That would be the greatest thing that ever happened to me.
