Quote of the Day

From a fellow on one of the message boards I read, in a thread on "saving" money by buying things on sale that you wouldn't have bought if they weren't on sale:

"Books: the crack cocaine of the literate class."

This explains why, despite telling my mother that I have books in a pile on the floor because I don't have enough money to buy another $35 bookcase, I came home with $40 worth of books a couple weeks ago. See, Mom? It's a compulsion--I can't help it.
