Splash du Jour: Tuesday

There is nothing for it but for all of us to invent our own ideal libraries of classics. I would say that such a library ought to be composed half of books we have read and that have really counted for us, and half of books we propose to read and presume will come to count—leaving a section of empty shelves for surprises and occasional discoveries.
-- Italo Calvino, Why Read The Classics? --

Have a great Tuesday!

Bravo! But empty shelves? Who has that much foresight!
