This is probably old news, but I'm reading Nick Hornby's collection of his columns in The Believer called The Polysyllabic Spree, which I got from the sale. Hornby quotes Gabriel Zaid's So Many Books: "the truly cultured are capable of owning thousands of unread books without losing their composure or their desire for more." Hornby goes on to add: "That's me! And you, probably! That's us! 'Thousands of unread books'! 'Truly cultured'!"
God bless them both!
