“The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Morituri Salutamus

I am an unrepentant bookworm. I love reading books, buying books, smelling books, admiring books. I love the crackling of the spine as it is first opened, and the aroma emitted by flipping through the pages. I have a strong distate for dog-ears, spine creases, and writing in the margins.
