Historian's bookshelf

Have you ever gone over to someone's bookshelves and just looked at the titles they have? I do it all the time. If I have an appointment somewhere, & there are books on a shelf, I will look at them no matter what the subject matter. I will look to see if I recognize any of the titles. I don't really care what they are about, I'm just happy there are books on a shelf.

I look at friend's bookshelves even though I know what is on them. I look to see if there is anything new, or anything I might have overlooked before. I look because I might have a new interest, & will rediscover a book or author I read about recently. I look because I love books.

So, if you ever come to visit me in my office on a Thursday night from 6:00-8:00 p.m., feel free to look at my book shelves. Better yet... here you go.
