An Introduction

I've created this blog for a few reasons. First and foremost, I love collecting books. I'm enchanted by books both for their content and, of course, as physical objects. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone else who collects books. I know lots of people who read and who keep their books, but none who collect. So, I start this blog as a venue for my thoughts on books in general and book collecting in particular. As well, I'm a younger (25 years old...) collector, and I'm curious how many other young collectors exist. I know we're out there, yet I've never meet one.
