The Chronicle: My Own Private Library

I think I may have this man's disease [which I believe is both a good thing, and in my family hereditary.] Now if I could only limit myself to one medium instead of two I might be better off. Currently I collect both sound recordings and printed words. My small space of America is over filling with books, magazines, CD's, and LP's. My collections are always growing at a faster rate then I am able to consume them, either by reading them or listening to them. Then there are the times when for weeks on end my collection doesn't grow at all, and I think that there is something wrong with me. Which there isn't at all, because in these weeks I have been productive in going through some of my piles of materials and cutting them down to size.

So I look at my piles of books and recordings, and think you know I could have a ton of more floor space if I put in more shelves. So I figure out what I need and start getting it. But living in a city and carrying things home on the subway has its disadvantages. You see the best places to acquire new books, CDs, LPs, etc. are near these same stores where I am getting the new shelving supplies. So can you guess what gets picked up?...

And another article for the chronicle to add, am I headed towards this path? And if I am not, how can I be? The Chronicle: In Praise of Eccentric Professors
