Thursday quotes: Terry Pratchett on Books

“If you have enough book space, I don't want to talk to you.”
― Terry Pratchett


It's not an extract. It's a quote.

I thought when they came out with the Kindle, that I was safe from overcrowding. But we were just discussing the need for creative storage in the library off the livingroom.

He also said that when enough books are kept together they form L-space and many more books can be made to occupy the same space. Small second hand book shops often demonstrated this by being much larger inside than out, but cyber-space is killing them off one by one, soon Blackwells in Oxford will be the last remaining shop which is bigger inside than out.

Hi Anne .. books - never too many, but some are going in the next few months ...

I've never managed Terry Pratchett ... I probably need to give one of his earlier ones a try ..

I just need time .. can that be stored and bottled?

Cheers - we are under deluges down here .. Hilary
