It is not the atoms that count, it is the content. Once a book has been read, it is part of you, you may after many years not remember much about that particular book, but it can not be unread, it is part of your personality. So why act sentimental about the physical appearance of the book? Collecting things seems to be as basic to humans as it is to squirrels, but it sure saves space, to collect digitally here on my bookcrossing bookshelf.

I would really like to swap some books. Look at my bookshelf for what I have to offer. All that are in my possession are available. Some first have to be read. These can also be requested, but it may take a while.

This is my Wish List, but am open to other suggestions! (thanx, cliff1976!)
