Here is an excerpt from my journal that says it all, I think:
"I don't want to be an unread book. I want to be read and explored and notes taken in my margins and reread again and again, rediscovered and enjoyed, forgotten parts delighted in and fond memories of the good parts reignited. I want to be devoured and consumed and then do it all over again, just like a favourite book, well loved and treasured and kept. I want a librarian, not a collector. A librarian knows the books, treasures them and seeks them. A collector just acquires, and then puts them under glass and never opens them to explore."
