Buying Books - A Quote

Hahaha. Now this is a quote that strikes too close for comfort.

Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860), German philosopher.

Too true!!! If only we could purchase time to read our books in... maybe we should steal some from the mountains. They have lots of time there.

Do they deliver by mail? I'm sorely in need of some.

Oh, wouldn't that be nice. Once you have kids, it gets harder and harder to carve out some time from the day to read.
