Here are some of the books in my house. I have read most of them. My system is to buy the books I read, and then underline them as I read them, and then keep them for future reference. I do love books!
Reading books has taken up quite a bit of my life - and I tend to think it was all worthwhile. However, I do have a nagging thought. While I am not much of a Marxist, Marx seems right on target in this quote from his Theses on Feuerbach (Thesis XI):
