"There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love, and like that colossal adventure it is an experience of great social import. Even as the tranced swain, the booklover yearns to tell others of his bliss. He writes letters
about it, adds it to the postscript of all manner of communications, intrudes it into telephone messages, and insists on his friends writing down the title of the find. Like the simple-hearted betrothed, once certain of his conquest, “I want you to love her,
too!” It is a jealous passion also. He feels a little indignant if he finds that any one else has discovered the book, too."
...har reist videre til nytt medlem i Slovakia, og hun skriver:
This book was given to me by a friend (17th September 2017) who worked in Dalen Hotel where they found it with his family. He brought it from Norway all the way home to Slovakia. Now it has travelled a bit with me, I brought it to London! :) I am planning to read it as soon as I finish reading a book from Marie Kondo and then release it into the wild somewhere so I will keep you posted! :)
Bok hittad och journalförd. Men den syns inte i statistiken på min profil. Jätteirriterande! Varför funkar det inte? Den enda förklaring jag kan komma på är att personen kryssade i rutan som säger att man lät boken vara kvar där man såg den, men det verkar lite konstigt för i journalanteckningen låter det som om vederbörande tog med sig boken. Skumt.
