Thought for today:
‘It is easy to buy a book; what is more difficult is to purchase the time in which to read them. Too often the mere fact of possession tempts us to think we own the contents.’
— Arthur Schopenhauer

As I was casually browsing through my books on quotes yesterday, I chanced upon this one.
I have thousands of books, some are reference so dipped in to, some are for reading, some are for looking and a lot sit silently on the shelf looking reproachful and feeling neglected.
Time to start reading more.
