Last night over beer and wine (and, let's face it, a spirit or two) a friend of ours muttered something about canceling his cable to save money. After bowling over with laughter at the drama of it all he set us straight. You see, we don't have television so we didn't know that cable television can cost an innocent person an arm and a leg! Seriously, an arm and a leg! "Better hit the library" was what one of us dribbled out in response to this news.
The conversation made us think of a book we recently discovered by way of The Nonist (RIP) in a post he wrote entitled, "Hot Library Smut". It's a very postmodern thing indeed; a big glossy book with pictures of big glossy (okay, some dusty) books. For anyone who has ever fancied themselves a fan of the library atmosphere, you will soon find yourself dreaming of traveling to far away places (where you can sit down and dream of far away places).
