Where do books go to die? Is there a library cemetery? To a diehard lover of books this is a delicate subject. What it comes down to is that there's only just so much 'space in the inn'. What to dispose of? Where to dispose? Who makes the call? Is there criteria to follow? Recently at a local library, I picked up a couple of discards that I gave to my brother as 'booby' prize at Christmas. My grandmother would have laughed her head off. I wrapped him a couple of biographies that I found: Knute Rockne and Charles Darwin. This summer he took on a close to 800 page life story of the English naturalist, resigned it out of his town library about 5 times. He read it slowly and carefully. It was tough sledding at times, but he completed it. Another example of the 'plugger' mentality found in our family at times. Don't give up! Never give up! Finish the job. A couple of days after Christmas, his wife texted me a picture of him reading my 'gift'. Will he take on Knute's life? His favorite collegiate football team is Notre Dame. You tell me. And by the way, I think he'll take good care of both of these books.
