Daily Dose

From Art Objects: Essays on Ecstasy and Effrontery, by Jeanette Winterson


“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”

From The Psychometry of Books
