I have a relationship with books


I have a living relationship with my books. They are not museum pieces. I underline, write notes, fold the corners of pages, fill them with a forest of post-it notes and improvised bookmarks, without hesitation or apology; they are my friends and my colleagues. I am unlikely to part with them until I die.
