An Old English word for library was “bōchord”, which literally means “book hoard”, and honestly I really think we should go back to saying that because not only does it sound really fucking cool, but it also sort of implies that librarians are dragons.
I’ve been spending a lot of time rearranging the main bookshelves to try to fit new acquisitions, as the other fiction shelves are full. I think I need to come to terms with the fact that we need more bookshelves.
“For the most part, I didn’t understand why so many people liked hoarding things. Then I started picking up books. I’m trying to get the house with the most bookcases because I have so many books, legally and illegally obtained.”
