i spent the morning with a kind friend who gave me tea, ginger cookies and a river stone necklace. the main reason for my visit was to go through her poetry collection and pick volumes to take away. it was a lovely experience. another friend of mine once gave me her entire collection of erotic fiction. my home is full of books given or loaned to me. i have a reputation as a voracious reader. bibliophiles seem to find me easily. my rules for my bookshelf are keep poetry, let go of fiction, except for exceptional fiction. keep reference books.
