A quote that I have found.
"Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack."
It kind of reminds me that I love used bookshops. :) I plan on going to a place like Borders and buying a new copy of a book, but then I swing by my favorite little shop and there are some of the books that I've pondered getting new. They sit there on the shelves and call to me to bring them home.
