Heaven is a Library

Until tonight, I never knew that others believed this:

"If you cannot read all your books, at any rate handle, or, as it were, fondle them -- peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on their shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that if you do not know what is in them, you will at least know where they are.  Let them be your friends; let them at any rate be your acquaintances." -- Winston Churchill

(This is the quote on a poster showing a wealth of conservatives books.  I've been reading the titles all the time I've been sitting here.  Even more gloriously, I've found a treasure-trove of in-the-flesh conservative books hidden away in the upper cabinets here at the RSO complex.  Finding that was the single most delightful discovery I've ever found.  Now I know for sure that Heaven is a library).
